Love-cheat buys wife jewellery for each affair

275x250.jpgA jewellery collection bought by a philandering millionaire for his long-suffering wife has been sold for £300,000.

In a bizarre arrangement each time businessman Robert Charlton had an affair he gave his wife Elizabeth a diamond gift.

By the time he died in 1979, she had amassed a massive collection of diamond gifts including bracelets, rings, earrings and a stunning riviere necklace made up of 54 diamonds (maybe he'd had threesome that time).

43 pieces from collection - which had been passed down to their daughter - were this week sold at auction for £300k by Woolley & Wallis.

At least he didn't insist on adding notches to his bedpost, he would have whittled it down to the size of a toothpick.
