Bell & Bird is a little shop that features hand-picked treasures located in Austin, Texas.  Most of the treasures are antique jewelry–like Victorain bangles, mourning rings, diamond cluster rings with Old European cut diamonds, and earrings that date back to the 1800s.  The shop also houses a few select contemporary pieces from jewelry designers.  The shop owners travel all around in search of jewelry to sell in the shop, which illustrates the thought behind the shop name–Bell & Bird–two Victorian-era women explorers Gertrude Bell and Isabella Bird.  Check out the shop’s website and sign up to receive the “Sunday Club” weekly emails.  The website is just a glimpse into what the store has to offer.  With direct flights to Austin being cheap and only an hour long, this might be a perfect weekend trip for me!
