Summary

Now available in a new edition, this opulent book reaches back 25,000 years to trace the history of jewellery from the Paleolithic Era to the present day.

Drawn from the extensive holdings of the Staatliche Museum in Berlin, this collection of jewelry through the ages links cultures and eras to show how the design, wearing, and collecting of personal adornment has evolved over the ages. Many of these beautiful pieces are presented for the first time in book form. They range from classic items such as necklaces, rings, and earrings to less common items with origins in non-European cultures. The book features jewelry ranging from the splendid crowns of Ancient Greece, golden earrings from Babylon, and jeweled collars worn by 13th-century Islamic royalty, to more modern pieces, such as those contained in the imperial collection of Queen Louise of Prussia, Art Nouveau jewelry designed by Rene Lalique and samples from the house of Bulgari. This chronologically arranged survey includes numerous brief essays and nearly 400 illustrations with detailed captions, making it an ideal reference for anyone interested in cultural history, the history of jewellery, or the art and craft of jewellery making.
