Here s a dazzling look at the history of our country told through its jewelry. Produced to coincide with the National Jewelry Institute s America the Beautiful exhibition, which will begin at New York s new American Folk Art Museum and travel throughout Europe and Asia, this sumptuously photographed coffee-table book traces the emotional and cultural implications of jewelry in America. From the Lady Liberty brooch, made in Connecticut in 1797, to the simple, classic prong setting for diamonds developed by Charles Louis Tiffany in 1886, to the elegant cocktail jewelry developed as a protest against Prohibition, Masterpieces of American Jewelry showcases our country s history in an enchanting new way."
