Summary
In the mid 1930s, in the workroom of Parisian jeweler Boivin, a jewelry designer created one of the most coveted pieces of jewelry in the world: the famous starfish pin. Created out of gold and encrusted with 71 cabochon rubies and 241 small amethysts, the starfish was distinctive because its five rays were articulated, meaning that they could curl and conform to the bustline or shoulder of the women who wore it. The House of Boivin made three of them. After seeing it in the showroom of a Manhattan jewelry merchant, Burns set off on a journey to find out all she could about the elusive pins and the women who owned them
Summary
The author describes her search for one of the most famous pieces of jewelry ever made, a gold, articulated starfish brooch encrusted with rubies and amethysts made by Juliette Moutard for Paris jeweler Boivin in the early 1930s
