About the Author
Vivienne Becker is a freelance journalist and jewellery historian living in London. She began her career working in the antique jewellery trade, initially as a hobby, but found the business so fascinating that she stayed for two years to learn more. After embarking on a career in journalism, she moved to Antique Collector where she began to write regularly about jewellery and develop her speciality. She has written extensively on jewellery both antique and modern, on the decorative arts and style in general, for a wide range of newspapers and magazines in the UK and the United States. She has written six books, contributed chapters to a number of jewellery books, essays for exhibition catalogues and for major sale-room catalogues. She is the jewellery editor of Harpers & Queen; she has a regular sale room column in the leading British trade paper, Retail Jeweller, and writes a style column for Jewellery International, a glossy international trade magazine. In 1987 she organized and wrote the catalogue for the first major exhibition of the jewellery of Rene Lalique, at the Goldsmiths' Hall and she was curator of Jewels of Fantasy, a travelling exhibition of twentieth-century costume jewellery. Her work keeps her in close contact with the antique jewellery trade, and she lectures, teaches and broadcasts extensively on her subject.
