in her fabulous french mansion valerie messika is on sparkling form as she tells why diamonds really should be a girl’s best friend

Valérie Messika grew up surrounded by diamonds, literally. Her father André is one of the world’s most important dealers, who travels far and wide searching out the finest stones for his clients. As far back as Valérie can remember, her home was full of diamonds. She played with diamonds, not dolls. “Yes,” she says, smiling. “I’ve always been around them. But it wasn’t until I was ten or so that I began to study them. It was like a game back then. My father showed me how to discover their qualities, the tiny flaws, the brilliance.” ‘Fear stifles imagination. I don’t have it — I was born bursting with creativity’ Her familiarity with the gems means she feels freer handling them than many jewellers, who are intimidated by their mystique. She says: “That fear stifles…

the inside story

KRISTEN STEWART TAKES THE CROWN WITH NEW ROLE After playing one fairytale princess in Snow White and the Huntsman, Kristen Stewart is portraying the most celebrated of them all: Diana, Princess of Wales. She certainly looked the part in photos released last week (right), with the 30-year-old actress perfectly mirroring Diana’s look from Christmas Day 1993 (left). Kristen plays Diana in the new film Spencer, which examines a pivotal weekend in the life of the royal as she makes the decision to end her marriage to the Prince of Wales. Playing such a famous figure “made me stand to attention in the best way”, said the Twilight star, adding: “It’s hard not to feel protective of her.” Unlike Diana, Kristen’s own love story looks set for a happy ending. She has been dating screenwriter Dylan…
