AbstractHistoryArchive Description

The disappearance of an opal and diamond ear-ring - a wedding gift - ruptures an acquaintance between the Carnegie's and the Consols. When Mrs Carnegie later discovers it caught in her cloak she panics and her silence and a jeweller's cleverness eventually return it to its owner - at a stiff price. Slight; intricate scheming. (PB)
