Flat color printing unfortunately diminishes this otherwise impressive compendium of text and photos (over 700) documenting the trends and sources of jewelry design in 13 countries of Europe and Scandinavia during the last 100 years. Arranged by country, coverage includes discussion of national characteristics and interaction among designers and artisans over time and across borders; biographical sketches for artists, artisans, and courturiers; and documentation and description of hallmarks and makers' marks, as well as jewelers' techniques and materials. The focus is on semi-precious gems, glass beads, rhinestones, and plastics set in silver, silver-gilt or brass (occasionally gold). Includes a value guide. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.

About the Author:

Ginger Moro, now from Los Angeles, California, lived in Europe for most of her adult life. There she worked as an actress and writer, while studying, collecting, and dealing in the designer jewelry world.

From Library Journal:

"Baubles, bangles, and beads" galore?and over 700 pictures of them. Leafing through this book is like going through your grandmother's jewelry boxes. Former actress Moro examines fashion, artists', and costume jewelry from 13 European countries from turn-of-the-century Art Nouveau to today's explorations of unusual materials. Familiar names like Schiaparelli and Chanel are covered, but the real asset of this book is that less well known jewelry designers are discussed. Though they may now be forgotten, their work was integral to the complete "look" of the costume of a particular period. As a "Schiffer Book for Collectors," this work includes a value guide and in a few cases marks and labels. Ultimately, however, it is simply an entertaining and informative guide to a part of the jewelry world where imagination runs free. A bit pricey but reader friendly; recommended for most collections.?Therese Duzinkiewicz Baker, Western Kentucky Univ. Libs., Bowling Green
