Her lifelong passion was precious stones. She preserved them like beloved friends and trusted them with her secrets and dreams. They came to embody her story.
When evening fell, in the intimacy of her bedroom, she removed the rarest and most creative pieces from their grey velvet cases. Some had names like Boivin and Belperron and others were marked by Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, and Boucheron. By the flickering light of the candle, she adorned her neck and earrings with these precious pieces and admired herself in the mirror. The touch of the precious jewels induced a deep intimate bliss. Each jewel embodied striking memories of a glamorous past.
