Joan Rivers adores jewelry. She loves to shop for it, wear it, and design it. She also loves to talk about it, which is just what she does throughout this glittering volume. Her passion for jewelry - as romantic keepsake, fashion accessory, and personal statement - informs every page of Jewelry by Joan Rivers. She describes the pieces that she has always admired, particularly those that have influenced her own designs. She tells the fascinating stories of her favorite jewelry designers, from the fabulous Faberge to the phenomenal Bulgari brothers. She devotes a chapter to accessorizing with jewelry, offering countless tips on how to turn that plain outfit into a totally chic ensemble by knowing what jewelry to select, and demonstrating the different looks that jewelry can achieve in a series of fashion photographs taken exclusively for this book.
All of Joan River's love and knowledge of jewelry is reflected in the pieces she designs for her own line of costume jewelry - the Joan Rivers Classics Collection - hundreds of which are reproduced here in specially commissioned, full-color photographs. And she takes us behind the scenes to show us how her jewelry is crafted, from initial sketches to finished product.
