I have recently read this book and I love how the book highlights the jewellery collection by period. In this book we can learn about the historical style of jewellery from Revival Period to Art Noveau to 1920/30s. The jewellery collection shown in this book is taken from Schmuckmuseum Pforzheim's selected gems collection. This museum is one of the museum that is dedicated to jewellery.
