This gorgeous book is a delight for all who are interested in fine craftsmanship, beautiful jewelry, and the role of fashion in an ever-changing world. Costume jewelry is an intimate reflection of its age. Shaped by the attitudes and fashion of the women who wear it, this jewelry reveals their temperaments, their fantasies, and the spirit of their times. This lushly illustrated book is a comprehensive retrospective of commercial costume jewelry, from 18th century Georgian, Neo Classic, and Romantic pieces to 20th century Edwardian, Art Deco, Cocktail, and modern "Glam Rock" jewelry. It discusses in great depth the roots of jewelry movements, the cultural trends that influenced jewelry designers-industrialism, wartime, the growth of Hollywood, technological breakthroughs, and the women's movement-and the effects jewelry had on women's fashions.

Antique Jewellery and Trinkets






This illustrated book was published in 1919.

PREFACE

The favourable reception accorded to the two first
volumes of the " Home Connoisseur " Series Antique
Furniture and Old Pottery and Porcelain assures me
that there are many who will welcome this volume, which
treats upon a subject which is interesting to every home
connoisseur. There is a peculiar charm about the jewellery
of former generations, those things men and women have
treasured and worn, or fondly handled as having had
personal touch with those who died long ago.

Many of the curios displayed in drawing-room and in
cabinets are relics of the prehistoric dead ; objects which
although not jewels as we understand them, were the
ornaments they wore and the things they reverenced.
There is a touch of sadness about the thought of rifling
the tombs of past ages, and of looted palaces and homes
destroyed ; yet all these factors have contributed to the
supply of antique jewellery and trinkets now treasured
in the modern home.

It is in the old jewel-box, however, that there are found
the relics of more recent times, and many of the pieces
of gold and silver jewellery, and flashing stones in their
quaint settings, can be worn to-day for now is the day
of replicas and the reproduction of the antiques of all
ages. Happy indeed are those who possess genuine
antiques !

Careful examination of museum exhibits, the varied
assortment of antique jewels in dealers' stocks, and those
that have fallen under the hammer from time to time,
has enabled me to gather much useful information about
these curios so varied, the work of man in past ages and
of almost every civilised nation in more recent times.
