Antique Collectors' Club, Feb 25, 2009 - Antiques & Collectibles - 207 pages
The book recounts the history of America's jewelry firm by examining its influence on jewelry style, its promotion of new technologies, its appreciation of American materials, and its ability to develop the brand. Much of the material represents research, particularly the section of Tiffany's gemologist, George Frederick Kunz, and the importance of Tiffany's displays at the international expositions. It presents a section to jewelry worn by men.
