Fashion for Jewels: 100 Years of Styles and Icons

Fashion for jewels
If you're a book loving fan of jewellery, it's been a very good week for you here on the site. Earlier this week we showed you Vintage Jewellery and now it's the turn of Fashion for Jewels: 100 Years of Styles and Icons

The book is written by Carol Woolton, the jewellery editor of British Vogue, so she knows what she's talking about when discussing stylish gems. The book also makes use of Conde Nast's vast picture library to provide some luscious imagery and to illustrate famous jewellery wearers such as Coco Chanel and Jackie O or prestige companies like Boucheron, Van Clef & Arpels.

It's a lot cheaper than a precious necklace too, priced at a very reasonable £25, though it's currently available for £16.23 from Amazon.
