It’s publication day for journalist Cherie Burns’ DIVING FOR STARFISH: The Jeweler, The Actress, The Heiress and one of the World’s Most Alluring Pieces of Jewelry, new from St. Martin’s Press.

One of Vanity Fair’s picks for “What to Read this Month,” DIVING FOR STARFISH is the intimate chronicle of five legendary ruby and amethyst starfish brooches, the secrets they have held in the 75 years they have adorned the high societies of New York and Paris, and the larger-than-life personalities who feature in their tale: among them a brilliant French jewelry designer, an American Standard Oil heiress and fashion icon, and an Academy-Award-winning star of stage and screen.
