"We're painting the roses red

We dare not stop

Or waste a drop

So let the paint be spread

We're painting the roses red

We're painting the roses red


Oh, painting the roses

And many a tear we shed

Because we know

They'll cease to grow

In fact, they'll soon be dead

And yet we go ahead


Painting the roses red

Painting the roses red

We're painting the roses red


Oh, pardon me

But Mister Three

Why must you paint them red?


Huh? Oh! Well, the fact is, Miss

We planted the white roses by mistake


The Queen she likes 'em red

If she saw white instead

She'd raise a fuss

And each of us

Would quickly lose his head




Since this is the part we dread

We're painting the roses red


Oh, Dear! Then let me help you

Painting the roses red

We're painting the roses red

Don't tell the Queen what you have seen

Or say that's what we said

But we're painting the roses red

Yes, painting the roses red


Not pink

Not green

Not aquamarine

We're painting the roses red!"


Well, do your worse, Queen Of Hearts, I'm painting my roses pink, so there!!!


Here's another funny bit of trivia. The Queen Of Hearts (from Alice's Adventures In Wonderland) is often mistaken for The Red Queen (from Through The Looking Glass) when in reality the only similarity between the two is that they're both queens.


Indeed, Carroll, in his lifetime, made the distinction of the two Queens by saying, "I pictured to myself the Queen Of Hearts as a sort of embodiment of ungovernable passion - a blind and aimless Fury. The Red Queen I pictured as a Fury, but of another type; her passion must be cold and calm - she must be formal and strict, yet not unkindly; pedantic to the 10th degree, the concentrated essence of all governesses!"


And so this necklace was fashioned after an unquenchable and uncontrollable desire for P-I-N-K!!


Pink Sapphires dance a-ring-a-round-the-rosey in a festive circlet also featuring Orange Topaz, Colombian Emeralds (one must also acknowledge the presence of fauna in a garden, yes?), Salmon Peachy Pink Peruvian Rhodocrosites, Peridot and Kenyan Pink Rubies.


This "transports me to a happy place" kaleidoscope continues on with a most delicious cascade of more colour including the additional touches of zesty Spessartine Garnets and sassy chains. That ravishing Pink Topaz Chandelier Focal commands a regal presence in all its 27 Carat beauty.


Yesssssssssssssssssssssss, Your Majesty!


Painting The Roses Pink is such a delicate affair which can be worn from 17" to 22", your wish is her command. Her focal portion drops around 3 3/8". All wires and components used are 14K Gold Filled. And those wispy little droplets along the chain? Those are extra touches of pretty Polished Peridot Rounds.
