Hand Tinted Beauty w/ Sweetheart Jewelry

Hand tinted photos normally are poorly done with little attention to detail.  This hand tinted portrait photo was masterfully created with crisp detail to the pins and bracelets.  The small pin on the girls lapel is known as a son-in-service pin and was normally worn by family members who had relatives, specifically brothers and sons, who were serving in the armed forces.  She is also wearing a son-in-service bracelet, and a “stretchy” heart bracelet, possibly from a boyfriend?  Who knows?  A real gem!
