Hundreds of stunning color photographs of magnificent jewelry and fascinating legends associated with all the different gem stones are combined to form a fresh, new approach to antique and modern jewelry. Organized alphabetically by gem types from agate to zircon, the lively text presents the mystical powers ascribed historically to each gem. At the same time, the variety of European and American jewelry styles shown., which span 300 years, proclaim the social, political and financial power of their owners. Because these examples were carefully chosen from international private collections, dealers, and auction houses, they exhibit what is actually obtainable today. Exceptional design, exquisite workmanship, and the finest materials demonstrate the best of the jeweler's art from each era. The Power of Jewelry is a visual feast, and the accompanying stories are both interesting and informative. Jewelry lovers(and who isn't?) will be captivated by The Power of Jewelry.
