Two Sundays ago I proposed marriage to Aimee. We have been friends for more than 22 years.

She said yes.

Now on her finger sits a ring, the origin of which could be dated back to the 1930s. It belonged to my grandmother. It was passed to my mother. My dear mother asked that I propose with it. Without any adjustment, the ring fit Aimee perfectly.

So, really, this is a portrait of everything in its right place.

Stars / In your multitudes / Scarce to be counted / Filling the darkness / With order and light / You are the sentinels / Silent and sure / Keeping watch in the night / Keeping watch in the night / You know your place in the sky / You hold your course and your aim / And each in your season / Returns and returns / And is always the same

This is a 30-second exposure (yes, we kept still for half a minute) on the beach in Caylabne, Batangas, Philippines.

1934 0.25ct European cut diamond engagement ring, platinum. This one had a nice old inscription and perfect proportions. The little rectangular baguettes they used in 1930s ring are some of my favorite aspects of Deco rings.

The Dark Valley: A Panorama of the 1930s
The 1930s were perhaps the seminal decade in twentieth-century history, a dark time of global depression that displaced millions, paralyzed the liberal democracies, gave rise to totalitarian regimes, and, ultimately, led to the Second World War. In this sweeping history, Piers Brendon brings the tragic, dismal days of the 1930s to life.

From Stalinist pogroms to New Deal programs, Brendon re-creates the full scope of a slow international descent towards war. Offering perfect sketches of the players, riveting descriptions of major events and crises, and telling details from everyday life, he offers both a grand, rousing narrative and an intimate portrait of an era that make sense out of the fascinating, complicated, and profoundly influential years of the 1930s.

“Dark Valley” as a phrase was coined first by the Japanese to refer to the desperate years of chaotic depression that followed the 1929 slump. But, as Piers Brendon’s epic history of the same name vividly demonstrates, it was apt to describe any of the world’s leading nations of the time–the crippled, traumatized European powers, a moody, solitary U.S., Stalin’s outcast Soviet Union, and volatile, upstart Japan–with varying degrees of severity and fascinatingly contrasting outcomes. With no dishonor to those who endured the unspeakable traumas of the First World War, reading Brendon’s scholarly tome leaves little scope to argue with the assertion, made by Leon Blum, among others, that the economic crisis and its effects were as traumatic as the “war to end all wars.” Worse was to come, for sure, but the events that led to the “chasm” of the Second World War still boggle the mind–from our safe distance it is difficult to comprehend that this actually came to pass, yet at the same time the whole era seems to be engulfed by a fatalistic air of inevitability. In many ways, the insane dance of rampant ideological forces and economic desperation unleashed across the sphere make for the more gripping history, and in Brendon’s hands, the cast of thousands is skillfully evoked, while the facts are judiciously evaluated, in a rolling narrative through the tribulations of the era. This is first-class historical writing, but certainly not for the faint-hearted. –Alisdair Bowles, Amazon.co.uk
