The book that tells you everything you need to know about costume jewelry.

Dazzling, stunning, coveted and often decadent, costume jewelry has brought sparkle and elegance to the world of fashion for centuries. Whether you are just starting out, an established collector, or simply interested in vintage fashion, this book tells you everything you need to know. Who are the big name designers? Who are the rising stars? Where are the new collecting areas? What should you look for when buying? This stunning guide includes a comprehensive introduction to costume jewelry - through Ancient Egypt to 19th-century America - and provides the most authoritative information on 20th-century jewelry by iconic names such as Trifari, Coro, Chanel and Dior.
