The Victoria’s Secret angels strutted down the catwalk at the annual catwalk show for the fancy undies brand on Wednesday, accompanied by Rihanna and the world’s luckiest 18-year-old, Justin Bieber. And many of them were decked out in jewels by Annoushka Ducas, jeweller to the stars and founder of Links of London as well as, of course, her namesake brand, Annoushka.

I met the lady herself yesterday in Brown Thomas to have a look through the latest offerings from the high-end jewellery brand, and it was quite the education – she was nice enough to talk me through everything I didn’t have a clue about, and to show me everything from her gorgeous initial charms to the Love Diamonds collection and the stacking rings that were her trademark and, as she remarked somewhat frustratedly, have been copied by all and sundry.

I came away with a gorgeous little book of jewellery-related quotes. My favourite?

“I think men who have a pierced ear are better prepared for marriage. They’ve experienced pain and bought jewellery.” – Rita Rudner
