Modern Jewelry: An International Survey, 1890-1963
by Graham Hughes

The first comprehensive international survey of modern jewelry to appear in print. This book traces the development and describes the important events in jewelry design and craftsmanship throughout the world. With 415 illustrations, 80 of them in full color.

The book covers the history of such famous firms as Garrard of London, Tiffany of New York, Linz of Paris, Wolfers of Brussels and Stern of Brazil. The author is authority on jewlry and its history, he is able not only to relate how pieces were made, by whom, for whom and why, but also to illumine the text with many personal quotations from designers and owners. He includes a biographical appendix of over 380 craftsmen, artists, retailers and manufacturers.

This book is both as a necessary work of reference for designers, art historians and professional jewelers and as a really distinguished and fascinating survey for the growoing number of amateurs intersterested in the subject.
