Product description

"21st Century Jewelry" is the 'best of' the "500" series of jewellery books. It showcases the most magnificent works from all 10 jewellery books in a single, hardback edition. It will inspire artists and art enthusiasts alike by documenting the most beautiful and influential jewellery of the past decade. More than 75 world-renowned jewellers and curators juried the collection and in their own words, they describe what made a particular piece stand out, how it spoke to them and its outstanding qualities. While this is most definitely a beautiful gallery book, it is also a wealth of priceless knowledge, opinion and analysis from experts who have shaped the contemporary jewellery movement as we know it.
