9780007268856: Necklace: 13 Women, 1 Diamond Necklace and a Fabulous Idea

One day a woman of average means waltzes by a jewellery shop window and spots a GBP20,000 diamond necklace. She can't get it out of her head. Eventually she gets the idea of sharing it with friends, persuading them to chip in a grand each to buy the necklace. This is the true story of 13 ordinary women, and one extraordinary adventure.The Necklace is the amazing true story of thirteen women who didn't want to give up on their dreams. They clubbed together to buy a gorgeous diamond necklace, agreeing that each of them would have it for four weeks at a time. They would meet every month to find out what the necklace (now dubbed 'Jewelia') had been up to. The club had some rules: if someone went to Paris, they got the necklace. At least once, everyone had to wear the necklace whilst making love.After two years, the necklace had been loaned out to nieces, grandmas, friends and granddaughters. It had been worn by brides and colleagues and sisters and friends. And when it was their turn for the necklace the women of Jewelia wore it for both the daily routines and special events of their lives, to teach school, to work in the farmer's market, to go fishing and skydiving. It started something.The Necklace is the story of how an object of desire became a catalyst for connection, friendship and more. It's like Calendar Girls, only maybe a bit more glamorous, glitzy and sparkling.

Review:

`With all the elements of Hollywood's next big thing ... a fabulously real, feel-good read.' Good Housekeeping`We aren't what we own or wear. But we are what we read. And "The Necklace" will be read widely....the best way to honour the book's principles is to share your copy with a friend.' - New York Times`The Necklace is a fascinating journey into thirteen women's lives. Sweet and touching, it also manages to make you think about what really matters in life.' - Kathie Lee Gifford, from NBC's Today Show`Never before has one piece of jewelry changed the lives of so many women - and created a lasting legacy of charity in the community they live in. I laughed, I cried . . . now I'm window shopping at Tiffany's.' - Leslie Lehr, author of Wife Goes On
