Footnotes

  • "Antique jewellery appeals to me as much as modern designs do. Bob and I came across a unique pair of brilliant and baguette-cut diamond and platinum earclips in a jewellery shop in London in 1990. That year saw the publication of 'The Women in His Life', part of which was set in Berlin in the 1930s. Both Bob and I saw the significance of these rather unique earclips, and they reminded us of Ursula Westheim, one of the main characters in the book. Before I could blink Bob had bought them for me. They have been favourites for years and look wonderful with party clothes or tailored outfits. They can also be worn as dress clips."

    Gift from Robert Bradford in 1990 to celebrate publication of "The Women in His Life".
