Reviews - What do customers think about Christie's Guide to Jewelry?

Beginner's book  Feb 15, 2006
It covers the main styles (and calls edwardian belle epoque, which is really confusing - the styles and their various names in various parts of the world and the chronological overlapping is killing me.. i'd love to find it in a neat table :)), main gems (ruby, emerald, sapphire, diamond) and includes some REALLY neat photograps of gems and a few important pieces of jewellery. Nice book for a gem / jewellery aficionado to have.
