A number of nice renaissance wear pictures I found:

This is a stunning earring set produced with gorgeous drops freshwater pearls. The pearls dangle from a chandelier with extremely intricate filigree scroll work.
Pearls have constantly been cherished, but throughout the Renaissance they ended up an integral component of any piece of jewelry. Pearl earrings were worn not only for their elegance but to show the prosperity and status of the lady. This certain design of fragile pearl earrings is timelessly romantic and feminine, with a 24kt. Vermeil.

Renaissance Typography »eX libris« (for widescreen displays)

Wallpaper 1920×1200 designed with a calligraphic »X« initial cap. I found this gorgeous calligraphic first cap in an old German e-book from the sixteenth century referred to as »Kunstrichtige Schreibart—Allerhand Versalien oder Anfangsbuchstaben der Deutschen, Lateinischen, und Italienischen Schriften aus unterschiedlichen Meistern der Schriftkunst zusammengetragen—Nürnberg, Paulus Fürsten, Kunsthändler« (in English: Arty Lettering—Collection of all sorts of cash letters and original caps of german, latin and italian lettering developed by diferent grasp craftsmen— Nürnberg, Paulus Fürsten, arts seller).
Supply: »archive org«
The brush I created for my wallpaper, making use of the scan of the »X« original cap, I reveal with you here: Website link
