Her enduring collection of jewelry has been eternalized with her book "My love affair with Jewelry" where she us on a tour of her astounding jewelry collection. 'She writes "I mean, how many young women get a set of rubies just for doing something wholesome like swimming laps? Or win a diamond ring at Ping-Pong with their husband...?
