Diana Scarisbrick

Diana Scarisbrick (born 1928) is an English art historian specialising in the history of engraved gems and jewellery.

Scarisbrick was born in Echuca, Victoria, Australia. She worked with the antique jewellery traders S. J. Philips in London, catalogued several significant collections, published scholarly articles and books, and was elected a Fellow of the London Society of Antiquaries in 1987.

Scarisbrick memorably described Queen Victoria's collections of Scottish jewellery, which include polished pebbles and semi-precious stones reflecting Highland geology, as "mute travel diaries". Provided by Wikipedia
