...what a riot

The anarchist Emma Goldman said "I'd rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck" but lets not be hasty, if you can afford the diamonds then perhaps you could manage both! Although there really is nothing more beautiful than a flower, even a diamond necklace, (De Beers does have a floral collection at the moment, does that count?!) From the humble forget-me-not to the extravagant lily, artists and poets have been inspired by their beauty.
