    Vintage Costume Jewelry-Unsigned and Still Beautiful!

    5/5 A Customer (south st paul, MN United States) - See all my reviews This review is from: Unsigned Beauties Of Costume Jewelry: Identification & Values (Hardcover) I think the book is worthy of it's name. It recognizes the beauty of unsigned pieces and their value. Each page includes colored photos of unsigned costume vintage pins, necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. The pictures are bright, clear, and vibrant. The only set back to this book is that the author has listed the value of the pieces a little to high. This is relative across the board though, so I wouldn't skip on purchasing this book. If you by vintage because you admire it's beauty and not it's maker, than this book is for you. Enjoy!

    Good Pics

    2/5 Race Girl (Tucson, AZ United States) - See all my reviews This review is from: Unsigned Beauties Of Costume Jewelry: Identification & Values (Hardcover) This is a decent book for prices and examples but didn't give much description on identifying. For instance it explains the different metals used to make the jewelry, but not how to identify which metal you have in your piece. Good for pics but not too good for identifying/dating pieces.

    A Generous Sharing

    5/5 laurie nienhaus (Fort Myers Beach, Florida) - See all my reviews This review is from: Ladies' Vintage Accessories: Identification & Value Guide (Hardcover) This book is the generous sharing of Ms.Johnson's passion of 25 years - the collecting of vintage clothing and accessories. With overviews of all of a woman's favorite accessories, the book can easily serve as a basic primer for those with a new-found interest in vintage pieces. The information on documentation, age determination, and worth accessment is both helpful and inspirational. The numerous close-up photos of a wide variety of accessories, along with drawings, illustrations, and ads from old periodicals will delight both new and experienced collectors, as well as those simply interested in the past - for fashion, as always, tells us much about culture. Ladies' Vintage Accessories is written in a personable style and is full of both information and food for thought. Highly Recommended.

    An OK anthology of pictures of vintage accessories

    This book follows the current trend in vintage clothing books, in that it consists of photos of items belonging to one collector, presented as an identification and price guide. There are brief captions and a little explanatory text. The author has photographed her items flat or on stands, thus avoiding the jarring effect created in some other books by the use of very modern-looking live models. Most of the items represent everyday, easily purchasable vintage accessories rather than spectacular or rare collectibles. There are also many black-and-white period advertising pictures, possibly to atone for the relatively small number of pre-1900 items photographed from the collection. The prices (unfortunately!) seem low for the current market, and I found no indication of how they were derived. Unlike some other books, most of the time the author avoids gushing about her collection. However, she does follow the current trend of giving comparatively little practical information on how... 4/5 Dianne Quinn (Sag Harbor, NY) - See all my reviews This review is from: Ladies' Vintage Accessories: Identification & Value Guide (Hardcover) I found this book to be most informative. It contains a vast array of information and subject matter....whether you collect vintage purses, fans, hats, gloves, parasols, shoes, capes, hankies, aprons, there is something for everyone! The illustrations and photos are beautiful and this book was quite obviously a labor of love by the author! FIVE STARS!!!

    Worth buying!

    5/5 Rebecca R. Hadley (Houston, TX) - See all my reviews This review is from: Costume Jewelry: Identification and Price Guide (Confident Collector) (Mass Market Paperback) I sell vintage costume jewelry for a living so, as you can probably imagine, I have a lot of books on the subject. This is definitely one of the best. It's filled with fantastic background information on the making of costume jewelry, the top name designers and popular styles. The photos (b&w and color) provide good illustrations and are often of rarer, less-frequently-seen styles. I also like the fact that it's a smaller paperback book (as opposed to a large format hardcover). It's easier to take to antique/jewelry shows and thumb through when necesary.

    A beginners' guide to collecting designer costume jewellery

    "Collecting Costume Jewellery 101" is essentially a beginners' guide to the main makers of (American) designer costume jewellery. Other information is also given, such as how to repair and clean costume jewellery and what to do with unwanted jewellery, all of which would be useful to a person starting a costume jewellery collection. However, the vast majority of this book are devoted to summaries of the main jewellery making companies.For most designers, the summary given is brief, comprising the dates of operation of the company; a brief history of the company; the signature look of the product; and buying recommendations. Nevertheless, this is more than enough for a beginning collector. Greater detail is given about Coro, Kramer, Trifari and Weiss, however, four designers whom Carroll recommends for beginning collectors. Numerous color photographs are also provided for each designer, with values given for each piece of jewellery.For people seeking a more... 5/5 Genevieve Hayes (Australia) - See all my reviews, March 22, 2008
