Madame de by Louise de Vilmorin

"There are some memories which burn and consume, there are others which freeze and kill"

This little gem, pun intended, tells the tale of a pair of earrings, secrecy, deception and the perils of re-gifting. Famously adapted by Max Ophüls as The Earrings of Madame De in the 1953 film, this short novella is a quick and easy read.
In 69, well there's that number, pages this tale spins a web of frivolity and deceit that is as tantalising as french champagne, and just as easy to swallow.

4 out of 5 baubles that happen to be diamonds can turn a girl's head.
