Vintage 1930s Liberty catalogue diamonds & pearls

I was just looking for a pair of earrings when I came across my Nan's watch in my jewellery box.  Seeing the little marcasite watch & leather strap reminded me of this wonderful page from one of my 1930s Liberty of London catalogues - here we have a selection of pearls and diamonds set in platinum - wow!  Have experimented with scanning & photographing the page but sadly the reproduction quality of both is a bit fuzzy.  Not fuzzy enough to dim the diamonds, though!
My Nan's little watch below, worn with love & pride on my wedding day.

And the diamond & platinum version in close up - dream on Karen!  Reckon would need to add a few zeros on that 1930s price tag of £25.00.
