    DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME HERE.....

    This is another good example of almost-vanity-press publishing. There are some nice pics of jewelry (as well as some really awful ones), but it just looks like the author wanted to show every piece of jewelry she owns, rather than trying to impart any knowledge to someone else. Very little or, worse, incorrect information and nothing of substance to help anyone trying to learn something. Sorry, stick to Jeanenne Bell or Marcia Brown as authors if you want to learn anything about jewelry or jewelry collecting.
