Ann Mitchell Pitman returns once again with her special brand of Southern humor and gorgeous vintage costume jewelry. This book features jewelry completely different from her previous two books, with no repeats. Featured chapters include Forbidden Fruit, Juliana, and Schreiner, among others. Once again there are nearly 1,000 full-color photographs of jewelry by companies such as Joseff, Coro, Miriam Haskell, Schiaparelli, Boucher, Hattie Carnegie, Weiss, Eisenberg, Mazer and Jomaz, Hobé, and Coppola e Toppo. Victorian Renaissance and Art Deco make appearances, as does more of the California ceramic jewelry of Ruby Z and Parrot Pearls. The histories behind the companies Calvaire and Ann-Vien are revealed, and of course Bakelite and other artful plastics are once again presented, along with vintage ads and websites devoted to selling vintage costume jewelry.
