Publisher Comments:

Called and#8220;the Fabergand#233; of our timeand#8221; by Diane von Furstenberg, Joel A. Rosenthal, who works in Paris under the name JAR, is one of the most acclaimed jewelry designers of the past thirty years. JAR is known for his use of precious and semi-precious stones resplendent with myriad shades of vibrant color and set in organic shapes: one brooch, for instance, features lifelike petals in subtly differentiated hues, made from a thousand pavand#233; sapphires and amethysts. The New York Times has described his jewelry as and#8220;belligerent, stubborn, audacious, funny, contradictory,and#8221; while JAR himself has characterized his work as and#8220;somewhere between geometry and a bouquet of flowers.and#8221; This book, featuring nearly 40 pieces from throughout JARand#8217;s career, provides a concise, accessible, elegantly designed retrospective of the best of his jewelry creations, and is the only book of its kind on his work available in English.
