5.0 out of 5 stars 5th Edition Of The Great Guide For Lovers Of Old Jewelry 9 Feb 2000
By Irvin Goodman - Published on Amazon.com
A very complete reference work covering the period 1840 to 1950, with prices updated for 1999. There are over 1,700 large, sharp, black and white photos and 32 page full color sections with superior, sharp, large photos. The 3 major sections are: When was it made and what is it worth?; 100 Years of Cameos; and Manufacturing Techniques. Each section is loaded with photos and information. It tells how jewelry is made, how to determine what kind of metal an item is made from, determining whether a stone is synthetic, a listing of maker's marks to help you identify and date pieces. A complete glossary is included. A must have book for the jewelry collector !

5.0 out of 5 stars Full of Information 17 Nov 2004
By G. Gupton - Published on Amazon.com
You might say I'm a novice when it comes to vintage jewelry. I learn as I go and every book I buy has some tidbit of excellent information. My feeling is that one can never have too many books as they become our reference guides. Jeanenne Bell did an excellent job and I refer to this book regularly. I'm glad I bought it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive Jewelry Book 22 July 2006
By P. A. Phillips - Published on Amazon.com
This book will educate you concerning the history of jewelry from the 1840's through the 1950's. Excellent history, pictures, price guides for the collector and the researcher. Contains not only black/white and color photos, but hallmarks, dating clues, artists marks, glossary and much much more. Invaluable book and one of the most used in my jewelry library.

3.0 out of 5 stars On the boring side 15 July 2007
By L. Cooper - Published on Amazon.com
Book was not put together very good. It was also very boring in alot of areas. The middle section that has pictures...fell completely out of the book and into my hands. Very bad binding job and cheaply made book. Would not recommend this book to anyone.
