Ginny Redington Dawes, a life-long collector of antique jewellery, has written two previous books on the subject - 'The Bakelite Jewellery Book' and 'Victorian Jewellery'. Staff writer for MGM Screengems Music, she is also a successful composer; she wrote the book, music and lyrics for the off-Broadway show 'The Talk of the Town' and has won a CLEO award for music for advertising.

She trained in an exclusive Bond Street antique jewellery shop before starting her own business in 1975 and has continued learning about and dealing in Georgian jewellery ever since. She is now an independent jewellery consultant.
