9780764312168: Costume Jewelry: The Fun of Collecting

The delight in owning colored and large-stone costume jewelry has grown over the last ten years among an international group of enthusiasts. This popular field of collecting is imaginatively conveyed through appealing photographs and thoroughly researched text in this expanded new edition. Both the famous and the little-known designers of costume jewelry are represented by carefully chosen examples, as well as the majority of pieces which bear no signature at all. Here one can see hundreds of necklaces, complete and partial sets, bracelets, rings, earrings and hair ornaments made with a wide variety of colored and opaque glass stones, metals, and plastics. The price guide relects the current market. Collectors, dealers, and fashion historians will enjoy the many beautiful examples shown here.
