Footnotes

  • " 'I've found two beautiful South Sea pearls on a string,' Bob told me one afternoon. We were on a summer vacation and stopped off in Capri on our way to Venice. Immediately I knew he had been to see Alberto and Lina at their shop, La Campanina. He went back, with me in tow, to look at the pearls again. The string turned out to be a double-strand diamond necklace. So much for Bob's inimitable understatement. I wore them that evening, and they were much admired, and still are."

    Gift from Robert Bradford for Barbara's birthday in 1996. Bought to match diamond and pearl drop earrings already owned. Purchased from Alberto e Lina, Capri.
