This gem of a book, now available in an updated paperback edition, sparkles with diamonds, rubies, and exceptional examples of the jeweler''s art. Featured are exquisite early medieval pieces and superb examples of jewelry design from the renaissance and Art Nouveau periods to twentieth-century treasures and right up to the present. Outstanding photographs illustrate not only rare precious stones but also elaborate techniques such as chasing, enameling, and cameo. Famous jewels are featured alongside rings, brooches, pendants, earrings, and tiaras, all revealing the beauty and technical virtuosity of their makers.
Clare Phillips is a curator in the Sculpture, Metalwork, Ceramics & Glass Department at the V&A. Her publications include Jewelry: From Antiquity to the Present and contributions to Art Nouveau 1890-1914 and Silver.
