Abstract:
"These uniques specimens - totaling more than 1,000 - have been carefully collected from a wide variety of sources. For the most part, the illustrations are drawn from original pieces in museums, and private collections; but many others have been
reconstructed from portraits of the time, as well as less vivid sources such as advertisements, design illustrations, literary references, even inventories and bills. The vast scope of the iexceelent volume includes examples of jewelry over a 4,000-yeatr period. From ancient Egyptian amulets, Greek armbands, Roman wedding rings, medieval crosses, Renaissance brooches, Victorian pendants, to space-age digital timepieces, 'Jewelry' traces the historical, technical, and aesthetic development of this timeless art-craft." - back cover.
