Synopsis: This is the first book ever published on this major American jewelry designer, who worked at Tiffany & Co.at the turn of the last century and created some of the firm's most dazzling jewels. These pieces are highly valued and sought after by museums and collectors, and reproductions are still sold by Tiffany today.

From Booklist: What would anyone expect from Tiffany's design director but a series of essays on the firm and its artists? Loring's third photographic panoply focuses on a little-known turn-of-the-century star, Farnham, now considered one of America's best native-born jewelers. Surrounded by some of the most exquisite, lifelike creations--such as a carnation corsage featuring diamonds, pink tourmalines, and green garnets--the book unfolds to show both drawings and actual designs from Farnham's very short career. The pinnacle is the enameled orchids that drew kudos from crowds at the 1889 Paris^B exposition--and catapulted Farnham into celebrity. Other designs are just as faithful to his talent. Once Louis Comfort took over the firm in 1902, Farnham lasted only another six years--then emigrated to the West Coast, divorced his wife, and transformed himself into a sculptor and painter.
