A lavishly illustrated and comprehensive retrospective of commercial costume jewelry from the 18th to the 20th century. In addition to hundreds of color illustrated pieces, it discusses in great depth the roots of jewelry movements, the cultural trends that influenced jewelry designers--industrialism, wartime, the growth of Hollywood, technological breakthroughs, and the women's movement--and the effects jewelry has had on women's fashions. A price guide is included for collectors.
