The latest offering from renowned author Ann Mitchell Pitman features the dazzling jewelry designs of DeLizza & Elster, a company known to jewelry lovers the world over as Juliana. This all-new reference book, targeted to collectors both novice and experienced, showcases a vast variety of vintage jewelry from a prolific manufacturer, one whose designs debuted in 1947 with simple, crystal rhinestone pieces and progressed to bolder, high-glitz bijoux in the 1990s. Special facets of the book include photographs and in-depth information about findings, chains, rhinestones, art glass, and beads employed; a crucial timeline chronicling when specific jewelry was designed; and key terms used by the manufacturer. Full-color photographs capture many complete sets, including alternate color versions of single designs, and in some cases, varying motifs in pins, brooches, and earrings designed for each set. Signature attributes and construction methods show collectors how to determine for themselves if a piece of unsigned jewelry is actually the product of this high-profile jewelry house.

As a collector of vintage costume jewelry this is a MUST HAVE if your interested in researching and knowing how to identify Juliana, (D &E), Delizza and Elster jewelry. I have several Juliana books and will be using this one for further identification, it contains many I have never seen before and shows a whole other side of what is out there. The photography is exceptional, it is packed with all color shots that you could almost pick up off the page...P.C. Morse
