The delight in owning colored and large stone costume jewelry has grown over the last five years into a competitive and often displayed interest among an international group of enthusiasts. This new field of collecting is imaginatively conveyed through the appealing photographs and factual text of this new book. Both the famous and the little-known designers of costume jewelry alike are represented by carefully chosen examples, as well as the majority of pieces which bear no signature at all. Here one can see hundreds of necklaces, complete and partial sets, bracelets, rings, earrings and hair ornaments made with a wide variety of colored and opaque glass stones, metals, and plastics. The price guide can be used to estimate values in the current market place. Collectors, dealers, and fashion historians all will enjoy the many beautiful examples shown here for the first time in print.
