I got caught up in the death of the Duke of Edinburgh that day, but forgot to congratulate you on your amazing find of the origin of Princess Margaret's Cartier Rose brooch, which is just wonderful given it is such a well known piece!
I recently saw someone use your information and many of the same pictures for a post on Princess Alexandra's Ruby Rose Brooch without acknowledging your hard work, which is really awful.
I totally understand why you are hesitant about posting your research, which I know you spend a lot of time finding and compiling.
Unfortunately, this is one of the reasons why I never publicly share my big research until I publish an article on it, and even then I find ‘experts’ taking the information and passing them off as their own, not replying to messages and even deleting comments that call them out.
I have so many extraordinary finds just waiting for the appropriate time to be published, and it is unfortunate that if I share them now, they will be used by other people without acknowledging my work, and there is very little that I can do except publicly calling them out, and even then the majority of their viewers will believe that they are the originators of that research.
