Her muscular figure and determined visage combined with the map of Africa spread across her silhouette creates an allusion to a great journey.

large Siberian amathyst mounted as a jewel with diamond-set honeysuckle motifs, c. 1810. At a later date it was made the centre of this amathyst and diamond tiara in the form of vine leaves that are a witty allusion to the purple stones. The word 'amathyst' derives from the Greek amethustos, literally meaning 'not drunken', referring to the belief that an amathyst placed in a glass of wine would allow one to drink without fear of intoxication. In the lore of the ancient lapidaries, the…

Frankly I'm not impressed with this one and the very reason I am pinning it for is to illustrate my disgust. Just because many guys like one girl doesn't mean she is a whore and it doesn't mean she is worth any less than another girl. Nor does it mean that just because she isn't as reserved as other girls it is a bad thing or she has lower self respect or standards. And this isn't a psychology fact either.
