Auntie Ella, who died ten years ago at 96, was a young woman at the turn of the century. She was the precursor to this ring as the seed pearls came from the strand that she wore.
It was the mother of a childhood friend who was most pleased when, at seventeen, I started work as a jewellery apprentice. I remembered her then as tall, glamorous and usually jangling. Her history was drenched with exotic places - and her wrists and fingers glinted with the bold reminders.
As the 'family jeweller' I have made more jewels for this woman than I can recall.
