Then there was the time he
was having lunch with Countess
Christiana Brandolini at her
home in Paris. He noticed the
brooch she was wearing, one of
his early designs he now
considered a "monstrosity" and

liked the original so much that
she had Boivin (of Paris) copy it
using diamonds instead of
glass.
Did the countess see any
humor in the situation?
"I think she thought it was
rather funny," recalls Lane, "but
I don't think she was thrilled to
madness because she had
spent quite a lot of money
doing that. Luckily, she has a
lot."
