"Jewelry from Nature" explores 200 years of fine jewelry made from natural materials, worn by style icons including the Duchess of Windsor, Coco Chanel and Diana Vreeland. Among the jewelers included are Cartier (whose Art Deco pieces in coral are icons of their era), Van Cleef & Arpels, Boivin, Faberge, Verdura (whose seashell brooches from the 1940s are collectors items), Schlumberger, Hermes, Lalique, Seaman Schepps and Tiffany. The book also features a host of important contemporary designers, notably Patricia von Musulin, Ted Muehling and Liv Blavarp. This timely and unique study of a key theme in jewelry design will appeal to makers, dealers, curators, collectors and historians.
