Summary

Summary

Originally created as an alternative for those who could not afford the real thing, costume jewelry has become a collectible as desirable as fine jewelry. The Official Price Guide to Costume Jewelry covers every phase, fad, and style. Each chapter details a decade, its creators, the fashions, and the look of the day. There are fascinating biographies of such designers as Miriam Haskell, Hobe, Joseff, and Kenneth Jay Lane, and histories of the major manufacturers--Trifari, Monet, Napier, Boucher, Ciner, and more. Includes hundreds of photographs and a special section on the why, what, how, and where of collecting. This outstanding resource offers vital information for every level of collector.
