Brooches: Timeless Adornment is the first book on the subject of vintage and contemporary pins and brooches. Beginning with an illustrated history of how this jewelry form has evolved--from Roman fibulae to scatter pins and starbursts--this gorgeously illustrated volume presents more than 175 of the best examples of fine, costume, and artisan jewelry made by top designers, among them Van Cleef & Arpels, Cartier, Georg Jensen, and Ted Muehling. Fashion stylists, celebrity collectors, and jewelry experts share their enthusiasm for the brooch and offer their ideas on how to accessorize with favorite pieces. These dazzling photographs show the jewelry as adornments to stunning jackets, dresses, and coats, and demonstrate how this piece has become a fabulous style statement. Practical information about storing, cleaning, and repair complete this indispensable resource for jewelry fans.
