The beautiful jewelry of Nepal, Tibet, and the Himalayas is extraordinarily evocative, with vibrant combinations of gold and silver embellished with turquoise, coral, amber, and pearls. Lavishly illustrated, this book celebrates the beauty of the jewelry and tells the overlapping stories of trade, conquest, faith, and fortune that lie behind it. Many of the stunning pieces featured here were specially photographed for the book.
