Gems in Trash

Although I will never put my finest jewellery with rubbish, I do love the strong contrast & raw quality of these photos, and the ideat that gems exist in the most unlikely places is true in life.

I like the bottom left one, the black against the silver and red is striking. It even makes the rubbish seem less like trash somehow.
