Numerous publications have dealt with the subject of jewellery, but this book stands alone: all of the jewels featured were owned by Marjorie Post, either bought by her or commissioned from contemporary designers using new and old gems.
There are major pieces by Van Cleef and Arpels (the remarkable diamond and ruby flower brooch is on the cover), Cartier, including the famous Indian Emerald Pendant brooch; the incredible Blue Heart Diamond set as a ring by Harry Winston and the Marie Louise Diadem, created by Etienne Nitot et Fils in 1810.
Illustrated with over 160 colour images, including design drawings, newspaper and magazine articles and advertisements, the book offers an enthralling glimpse into one woman’s extraordinary collection.
Each chapter includes short essays by experts in the field on a variety of historical, sociocultural, and gemological subjects.
