5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal for the new collector! 8 Sep 2004
By A Customer
I love this book! Includes beautiful, large and detailed photographs, clear descriptions of styles and materials and excellent, concise designer profiles.
The designer profile section is easy to use and it also includes lesser known names. All in all, very helpful for a novice costume jewellery collector!
