    A nice compliment to my other Vintage Jewelry Books. Very good pictures, with descriptions, and dates. I like books better if their pieces are dated.

    I have dozens of books on costume and estate jewelry and I rate this as one of the best. Beautiful and detailed photographs and sketches (colored and black & white). I especially appreciate the historical information of the different style periods. After 35 years of collecting jewelry, I appreciated this book for offering me a continued learning opportunity. This book is definitely one I will keep close by.

    Just received this book last night. Estate jewelry is such a vast topic. This book could have been good or really bad...but it ROCKS! I am a jewelry dealer and have a library of reference books. This book has so much to offer. The author touched on so many different categories within the umbrella of "Estate Jewelry". In one night I learned three things that I did not know. She has photos of items that I have never seen before in a book. The correlation between clothing and jewelry styles throughout the years is presented in a very comprehensive manner. Photography is great. I very much appreciate how construction techniques and the evolution of style is presented in this book. A must have for the library of collectors and dealers. I can't wait to read it again tonight!

    Wow. What a wonderful book. It's only the 2nd "jewelry" book I have purchased. I recently got into collecting vintage jewelry and wanted to focus my interests, and I am so glad I chose this book. I absolutely love it, and refer to it often. I have already been able to apply the information to my treasure hunting for vintage and estate jewelry. Thank you!
