If you are looking for some inspiration from the days of glamorous jewelry look no further than this essential book, 20th Century Jewelry & the Icons of Style. As Jeffrey Felner said in his review,

“Consider this fabulous and lush photo-filled book an early holiday gift for those who have more than just a fleeting curiosity in “haute joallier” and life as it once was in the heyday of grande dames and “teddibly propah” high society.”

This book is a candy shop for devotees of adornment by jewels and precious metals. Eleven rich and glamorous women who built up astonishing jewelry collections in the early and mid-20th century are profiled in this superb book:

Marjorie Merriweather Post
Lydia, Lady Deterding
The Duchess of Windsor
Daisy Fellowes
Countess Mona Bismarck
Barbara Hutton
Merle Oberon
The Maharani Sita Devi of Baroda
Maria Callas
HH The Begum Aga Khan III

Hindou Necklace created for Daisy Fellowes by Cartier in 1936.

The authors of the book, Stefano Papi & Alexandra Rhodes, are both international jewelry experts and they reveal the stories behind the jewels and their collectors with their insight and knowledge. Not only do they bring to life the worlds in which these women moved, but they also describe the gems in detail and provide a portrait of the work of the leading jewelers of the day, such as Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels and Harry Winston.
