Synopsis: Surveys the exhibition of Greek gold jewelry held in 1994 at the British Museum and at the Metropolitan Museum of Art

From Booklist: Three world-class museums--the British Museum, New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art, and St. Petersburg's State Hermitage--have opened their coffers to showcase close to 200 pieces of ancient jewelry. Samples have been plucked not only from Greece but also from what is now known as Egypt, Cyprus, Sicily, and southern Italy. The authors' scholarship is unobtrusive; in fact, the text provides relatively easy reading for those charmed by objets d'art as well as curators and professional jewelers. Each item is well researched; included are its provenance, approximate date of manufacture, dimensions, a lengthy description, current and original owners, and a bibliography. The color photography is exquisite, resulting in details so fine that readers sense they could almost touch the precious metals. Barbara Jacobs
