This gorgeous volume highlights hundreds of examples of the finest floral jewelry ever made. Divided into four seasons―and the flowers that bloom in them―this book explores the history of flowers in the fine jewelry world and features dazzling illustrations, original sketches and gouache paintings showing how these blooms have been translated into pieces that are both priceless and ageless. The jewelry editor of British Vogue, Carol Woolton, offers expert insight into fashion history and trends. She explores the Belle Époque, styles of the 1940s, and the re-interpretations of iconic pieces.
