A classic Antique Collectors' Club title, "Understanding Jewellery" is unique in explaining why jewellery values vary and the individual points important for each category.
Explanations are given in a straightforward, uncomplicated manner with a text largely linked directly to specific illustrations.
This makes the assimilation of the information much easier than in traditional text-dominated books.
The authors, both jewellery experts, evaluate many millions of pounds' worth annually and thus handle a complete cross-section of what is available on the market.
They have specially selected the hundreds of superb colour illustrations to show what to look for and, equally important, what to avoid.
Whether interested in the history of fashion, deciding what to buy or simply to enjoy a visual feast of beautiful objects, this book will serve as an invaluable reference and represents outstanding value.
