The collector shows a desire to be unique in setting, rather than following, fashion trends. Roseann Ettingers book reads like a treasure huntÐin six chapters, she takes the reader on a tour of antique jewelry from the 1840s to the 1940s, covering the Victorian era and late nineteenth-century discipline through to Art Nouveau, Transitional, and Art Deco.

Fascinating details on various pieces, their origins, and their makers make the jewelry come alive.Beautifully arranged full-color photographs of cameos, hair combs, hat pins, necklaces, buckles, chokers, lockets, and many other pieces handsomely complement the text. Popular Jewelry aids the reader in identifying period jewelry and the materials used in their manufacture.

It also provides invaluable information for the novice collector who cannot always tell a genuine antique from a copy. The effects of history, culture, and materials on jewelry-and the effects of jewelry on culture-are intricately interwoven.

A price guide and index are included.
