1) I think you'll find "diamond studded" is the phrase -i.e. studded (decorated) with diamonds.
2) I need more context to answer this - I've never seen the phrase but would assume it to mean someone who is polite, who pulls out chairs for ladies at dinner parties - it sounds rather derogatory.
3) "went all to pieces" - fell to bits, came apart, generally failed and became decrepit.
Hope this helps
