  1. Is that the emerald and diamond bracelet? I hadn't noticed it before! I've read that it was a gift (along with matching earrings) from Charlie when she lost the role of Scarlett O'Hara.

  2. You are correct! I saw those pieces (there is a brooch and earrings as well) completely by accident at the Legion of Honor in SF about 7 or 8 years back. I was there to see a DaVinci portrait and it was crowded so I went to look at some jewelry exhibit. I was stunned to see them in a case! They are gaudy gold with emeralds and diamonds – BIG, too. And yes, apparently a consolation gift for losing the role of Scarlett.

  3. Wow, that adds all kinds of question marks! She wears the jewelry he gave her to this "reunion"? A coincidence? Kind of interesting, no?
