From classic bangles and baubles to avant-garde sculptural pieces and body ornaments, this collection of striking photographs showcases the finest work of more than 80 jewelry designers. An eminent jeweler discusses the subject in all its aspects: materials, methods, aesthetics, and the interaction between the wearer and the ring, necklace, or brooch. With such wonderful pieces as Annelies Planteydt's delicate necklace of hammered gold and Peter Chang's colorful acrylic and polyester bracelet, this portfolio provides a wealth of ideas and a visual feast.
