Review:

How to be Savvy It seems so easy: See sparkly bauble; buy sparkly bauble; wear sparkly bauble. Well, that can work if you're a novice, that is. But those who truly love wearing jewelry need to think about more than just whatever catches their eye. It's about finding pieces that complement your features and personality, and building those pieces into a cohesive wardrobe. Enter Jewelry Savvy: What Every Jewelry Wearer Should Know, a new book by two industry insiders, Caroline Stanley and Cynthia A. Sliwa. The 224-page softcover volume covers everything from choosing pieces that flatter (both your build and your outfit) to helpful information on how to clean, store, buy, and carry jewelry. The most practical how-to we ve seen on the subject, the text is peppered with shaded boxes that contain Savvy Tips (of Darn, why didn t I think of that? variety). This writer s favorite (because it actually generated that reaction): When you put your other watches in a drawer for a nap, pull out their stems (to the setting position). This stops the watch and saves the battery for future use. Clearly written, with the user-friendly format of a textbook (complete with comprehensive glossary), this book is designed for the consumer who loves jewelry. JCKstyle thinks jewelers out there could learn a thing or two as well, especially from the chapters on understanding a woman s personal style and styling jewelry to complement her face, body, age, and wardrobe. After all, when it comes to jewelry, you can never be too rich, or too savvy. ----Carrie Soucy, editor, JCKstyle (Jewelers' Circular Keystone)
