"Henry Dunay: A Precious Life" is both a lavish album of Dunays finest designs and a biography that tells the amazing story of his rise from an immigrant family to the heights of the jewelry world. A contemporary American jeweler, Henry Dunay single-handedly built a business to fit the luxurious mold of the great jewelry houses of all time: Faberge, Cartier, and Van Cleef & Arpels.
This is a world where superb craftsmen master arcane knowledge of precious and semi-precious stones; where jewelers compete for newly discovered gemstones; and where glamorous women vie to own one-of-a-kind pieces.
This book includes a biographical essay by Penny Proddow and Marion Fasel, an essay on Dunays use of colored stones by mineralogist George Harlow, and an essay on Dunays society and celebrity clientele by journalist Jeryl Brunner.
