Item Description...
A discussion of the quality and style of the eighteenth century, and the design and workmanship related to jewellery.

Publishers Description
Georgian Jewellery is a celebration of the quality and style of the eighteenth century and the endless ingenuity in design and workmanship which produced so many pieces of unique and unparalleled beauty.
Until now academic approaches have been taken in exploring the jewellery of the 114 year period - this book illuminates the subject in a more colourful and accessible way. Information on Georgian jewellery has always been difficult to gather and here it has been carefully assembled and divided into six unique groupings. The period comes alive with enlightening text and over 280 close-up colour photographs of exceptional jewellery; portraits and character sketches of famous Georgians in their finery, fashion tips, gossip and some rather outrageous cartoons of the time. Along with the revelation of some interesting newly discovered facts, this book also advises collectors and dealers how to recognise Georgian jewellery, buy and repair it, and how to separate the real thing from the plethora of reproductions on the market.

Brief Description of Book
Georgian Jewellery 1714-1830 is beautiful! There are hundreds of color photos that hook the reader into the dazzling beauty of ornaments of yesterday. The bulk of the pieces in this book were made during the last 50 years of the Georgian Era.
Georgian Jewellery is composed of six chapters the first three; Dawn, Day and Night group jewelry by what time of day it was intended to be worn. Tidbit: Coral was the only natural material that was considered acceptable for all times of the day and night. The remaining chapters group jewels by their purpose: Love, Death and Eternity. A note that is the English spelling of jewelry I didn't forget to use spell check.

Quantity of Illustrations: 300 total including original photos and archival images

Quality of Illustrations: Most illustrations are color photographs by Tom Dawes, the author Ginny Redington Dawes husband. He has a steady hand and a wonderful eye for jewels. Most of the photos are large so there is a lot of detail. Many times there are one or two photos to a page so the pieces look as if they are close to their true size. I see two shortcomings in this book. One, there are only a few photos of the reverse side of the pieces. Since many readers will not have the opportunity to handle Georgian pieces first hand those photos would have been a great aid to help positively identification. The second shortfall is that there are no measurements of the pieces so it is impossible to determine how large or small they are.
There are also a number delightful of archival paintings and etchings that show how the jewelry was originally worn.
