Product description

This book is the first book of its kind, concentrating not only on costume jewellery, but also on those pieces that are unmarked or unsigned by the manufacturer.

All photographs are indexed for easier research, and a helpful glossary has been included.
Glossy, laminated boards, tight text block, clear text on clean pages, enhanced by over 1,000 attractive photographs, almost all in glorious colour, featuring 3,500 pieces of antique and collectible costume jewellery, highlight this beautiful book.
