getty villa

 I've often gone to the Getty Center for my culture fix on past trips to LA, but this time we checked out the Getty Villa in Pacific Palisades on my uncle's recommendation. The Villa sits on a hill overlooking the ocean and it houses 44,000 Greek, Roman and Etruscan antiquities. Apart from the beautiful gardens, my favorite stop was (naturally) the jewelry collection. 

Really wish I could throw an arm party with this bedazzled, two-thousand-year-old bracelet. 

Everything old is new again. Collar necklaces are so 100 BC. 

I couldn't resist including another (non-iPhone) shot of this incredible pool.

  1. These are amazing! I've been to the Getty but never knew this place existed, what a gem. Must figure out a trip to go there one day!
