Do you see your self as a woman who wears diamonds? I love this necklace but I love my diamond studs more. Quite probably as they're truly mine, and not in my imagination, but more for the story behind them.
I have the delight of having a twin sister, henceforward known as Twin. We had always teased my father that he could buy 'four for under £2000' (meaning four diamond studs for our four earlobes). When twin married 10 years ago my parents gave me an extra birthday gift which were diamond studs saying.
'So you know that we love you and are here for you as much as your sister, even though in the next few weeks we maybe focusing on her.'
And do you know the most wonderful thing of all is that I didn't need these beautiful earrings to know that.

I love this quotation - it makes me smile.
'A woman of my age needs diamonds near her face, to give it a sparkle.' Nancy Mitford Love in a Cold Climate

What diamond jewellery would you chose?


  1. 'Not that I give a hoot about jewelry. Diamonds, yes. But it's tacky to wear diamonds before you're forty.'

    Says Holly Golightly - Breakfast in Tiffany's

    So putting the two together the only women who need sparkles near their faces are women over 40?

    What d'you think?


  2. Diamonds at any age I say - especially if one's surname is said jewel! x


Ooh how lovely more stripes on the page...
Thank you for taking the time.
