The revised and expanded second edition of this beautiful, popular, and easy-to-follow book is a thorough reference to antique and period jewelry, created over a 200-year period, in Canada, Europe, the United Kingdom, and the United States. It presents the changes in construction techniques and jewelry styles through over 680 color photographs, including over 190 new images, with clear descriptions and explanations. From the Georgian through the Victorian, Belle Epoche, Art Deco, and Modern periods, the fascinating story of jewelry evolving with women's fashions is told. Great designers' work is identified along with their materials. Their findings, fittings, and makers' marks are fully explained. The value reference section of over 500 items has been updated and is organized to locate pieces easily without going through the entire book. Bracelets, brooches, and each other form are grouped together and in chronological order. Advanced collectors and appraisers will find this a complete and quick-reference tool. Novices will enjoy learning this fascinating field through the many illustrated identification tips.
