a LOT of inaccuracies in this book, sloppy research or ineffective editing, in either case not a good book for reference or valuation
Not sure what's allegedly inaccurate. I love this book. It even includes GIA photos. Great info and glorious color photos. I highly recommend it!
A must read for someone who is into antique jewelry. The author covers so many topics of interest.
A good read with interesting facts regarding jewelry people may have in their families or may come upon at estate sales.
