Quoting Elizabeth Taylor (‘Jewellery has the power to be this one little thing that can make you feel unique’), this first in-depth survey of ‘high’ jewellery as an art form celebrates the most innovative and extravagant objects by the world’s leading designers such as Bulgari, Cartier, Tiffany, Van Cleef & Arpels and others. Beautifully illustrated with never before seen imagery, the book explores the inspirations, materials and techniques which have elevated jewellery from decorative objects to works of art.
