When MOTH decided to seal my fate with diamonds, he just surprised me (& that's a whole other post!). He always said he couldn't stand the thought of sitting down with me in some cookie cutter jewellers store & being played like a sucker - he's soooooo romantic! However if the store had been Jacqueline Rabun's atelier studio in London, I reckon I would have dragged him in kicking & screaming just to experience the surroundings set designer Lyndsay Milne McLeod created for her.
The store is housed in a converted stable in a gated mews in Belgravia. It is described as feeling like 'an oversized jewel box where the stable stalls are compartments within which the jewels are nestled'. And I couldn't agree more! Have I rekindled any memories of your ring-buying expedition?
