cover of Vintage Jewelry DesignI am really excited to share this book with you! I have been anxiously awaiting this one since the mention back in October by Marthe Le Van at Lark Jewelry and Beading. Vintage Jewelry Design Classics to Collect and Wear by Caroline Cox surpassed my expectations. Carefully researched history from around 1890 to present day, this book is both a visual feast of styles and an invaluable resource for following the evolution of the art of jewelry.

In addition to the rich history of jewelry, Carolyn gives you tips for spotting fakes when shopping for vintage pieces, how to care for your vintage collection of jewelry, and a glossary to explain jewelry and gemstone terms. She also takes us beyond the history into modern jewelry design.

Carolyn’s list of museums and collection of websites is an open invitation to learn much more than this wonderful book covers.

If you love jewelry, this book is a must-read!
