Organized chronologically, the book goes on to trace precious works from subsequent epochs, unveiling the masterpieces that epitomize the craftsmanship of each, as well as presenting a fascinating documentation of the beliefs, values, and societal structure of each civilization. From the jewels of the Etruscan aristocracy to the vases and cameos from the de Medici family estate, golden treasures of faith and art in St. Peter's Cathedral in Rome, the treasures of the English royalty, and the maharaja's jewels, the splendors revealed in this volume are portrayed in full-color photographs that demonstrate the luster, texture, and intricacies that made them so desirable in their time and make them such priceless cultural treasures today. Concluding with a chapter on Cartier, the master jeweler, Treasures in Gold presents the compelling stories behind the creation of each work of art. This unique portable museum is a fascinating read for decorative arts enthusiasts and a useful reference for anyone involved in jewelry design"--Product description
