FLORAL JEWELS: FROM THE WORLD'S LEADING DESIGNERS. Carol Woolton. Prestel-Verlag, Munich, 2014. 176 pp. with 185 ills. (183 col.). 31 x 25 cm. ISBN 9783791381145 In English.
Publisher's description: Throughout history, flowers have been the inspiration for jewelers and the people who wore their creations. Gabrielle Chanel's favorite flower was the camellia and since the 1920s the flower has become incorporated into every aspect of the house's designs. Christian Dior favored the lily of the valley and made it the center of his 1954 collection. This gorgeous volume highlights hundreds of examples of the finest floral jewelry ever made. Divided into four seasons-and the flowers that bloom in them-this book explores the history of flowers in the fine jewelry world and features dazzling illustrations, original sketches and gouache paintings showing how these blooms have been translated into pieces that are both priceless and ageless. The jewelry editor of British Vogue, Carol Woolton, offers expert insight into fashion history and trends. She explores the Belle Epoque, styles of the 1940s, and the re-interpretations of iconic pieces.
