From the Publisher: Filled with more than 150 four-color photographs of the most beautiful jewels of our time, Extraordinary Jewels also tells the stories -- and often the scandals -- surrounding each jewel. We learn about the legend of the Hope diamond, of the diamond and ruby necklace and tiara made for Princess Grace as a wedding present, of the Duchess of Windsor's preference in jewels -- and of how she acquired them. In addition, John Traina traces the history of and genius behind the world's most famous design and auction houses, including Asprey, Boucheron, Buccellati, Cartier, Christie's, Sotheby's, Tiffany & Co., Van Cleef & Arpels, and many more.
Extraordinary Jewels is a stunning gift -- the perfect holiday present!
