About The Blue Paisley Fox
The Blue Paisley Fox is owned and operated by Augusten Burroughs, D.Litt., the #1 bestselling author who is also a certified professional gemologist and jewelry collector of note. Augusten was the first male ever profiled in The New York Times jewelry section and he has written about his love for "shiny things" since his first memoir, Running with Scissors was published in 2002. Augusten is also a second-generation jade collector and has a special connection to and knowledge of this fascinating, often beguiling stone. The Blue Paisley Fox specializes in the exceedingly rare, singularly unique and one-of-a-kind. His private collection includes extraordinary pieces that are either unavailable elsewhere on the market or very challenging to locate. Augusten is honored and delighted to open his collection to other jewelry lovers and collectors exclusively here on 1stdibs.
