A slight story, told from the point of view of England's most respected jeweller, a man who worked his way up from the slums. Although he gives the impression of being rational and practical, old memories intrude on his thinking.
An ageing duchess pays a visit to his shop, and beneath the polite haggling is a battle between old enemies.
The writing is good, it's just that progress has made the story quaint.
