Jewels and Jewelry
As a collector of antique jewelry I am always interested in book on the topic and I own a lot of them. I must say that this book has the best photographs of any book I have seen thus far. They are incredibly clear, almost like one is actually looking at the piece. The text is very comprehensive and takes the reader through a review of the different types of metals as well as a journey through jewelry starting in the Middle Ages into the 1990s. It finishes with a review of hallmarks and even jewelry boxes. I was very pleasantly surprised by what a nice book this is and would recommend it to others interested in the topic.Read full review...
