I never tire of her images although I do consider her quite loathsome although Anna Sebba's That Woman is a good read even though you think you know most of her story anyway. It is the way she wore jewellery so well, in fact exceeding well that fascinates me. It washer ability to wear ornate piece and make it look effortless. The fact she would pile it on and it would look effective and simple.

When I saw this piece in the Stella and Dot design studio I drew breath as it immediately reminded me of Simpson and the 1930s. It is currently a preview of what will be the Autumn Winter 12/13 jewellery collection but for me it is a must have piece, my own little love affair. I'd better get saving those pennies or find myself a Duke of Windsor, I'm not sure Mr MDS wants to play that role!
PS There is less expensive version which is the panther pendant and is a great everyday piece to wear.
