It goes without saying that jewels are not just ornaments: precious stones, necklaces, rings help us to express our way of being. They remind us of particular moments or special people, sometimes we wear them or offer them as gifts to make a strong impression on others. The author of this book, a tiny gem in itself, is an authority on the subject, and her memories, combined with alluring digressions on topics ranging from fashion to style, from history to literature to cinema, tell us about a world of art and beauty, where dreams often turn into scintillating realities.
