Description

The revised and expanded second edition of this beautiful, popular, and easy-to-follow book is a thorough reference to antique and period jewellery, created over a 200-year period, in Canada, Europe, the United Kingdom, and the United States. It presents the changes in construction techniques and jewellery styles through over 680 colour photographs, including over 190 new images, with clear descriptions and explanations. From the Georgian through the Victorian, Belle Epoche, Art Deco, and Modern periods, the fascinating story of jewellery evolving with women's fashions is told. Great designers' work is identified along with their materials. Their findings, fittings, and makers' marks are fully explained. The value reference section of over 500 items has been updated and is organised to locate pieces easily without going through the entire book. Bracelets, brooches, and each other form are grouped together and in chronological order. Advanced collectors and appraisers will find this a complete and quick-reference tool. Novices will enjoy learning this fascinating field through the many illustrated identification tips.
