Need a book on jewelry which is lavishly illustrated? Thames and Hudson never disappoints, but this is not a coffee table book. It is a valuable reference book, with at least a black and white photo to illustrate nearly every entry. ( )

Knowing that a book is from Thames and Hudson is always a recommendation to me, and this did not disappoint. It is loaded iwth information about designers; styles and types of jewelry; famous jewels and hoards of jewelry; techniques for cutting gemstones, etc. The entries frequently contain cross-references to related topics. Numerous pictures are in the outer margins of the page to illustrate many of the terms. The one disappointment is that more of these are not in color. (O.K., maybe that is asking a lot).

I expect this to be an extremely useful reference tool. ( )
