Jacqueline Rehmann, author of Classic American Costume Jewelry has done it again! In Volume 2, Ms. Rehmann features vintage costume jewelry made of wood and plastics. In a section entitled Bling she includes photographs of fashion jewelry made with rhinestones. The wood pieces can be considered novelty jewelry and the designs are often whimsical, novel, amusing, and even quirky. The history of plastics is described in the next section and includes a timeline of plastics. Many photographs of plastic novelty jewelry as well as fashion jewelry made with plastic embellishments are included. Historical information includes copies of patents and vintage advertisements that help identify and date jewelry. All photographs are accompanied by detailed descriptions that include estimated values. The table of manufacturers/designers, a popular item from her first book, is updated and expanded in Volume 2.

    A MUST book! You should READ AND look at the pretty pics!

    0 5/5 Phyllis Goodwin - See all my reviews This review is from: Collectible Costume Jewelry: Identification and Values (Hardcover) This is a FABULOUS book! I only wish I had this for all categories of my collectables. Not only does she have WONDERFUL color pictures of ALL different types of costume jewelry, enabling you to see other pieces similar to yours; but she does an excellent job CLARIFYING terms ie BAKELITE vs CELLULOID vs PLASTIC! She even includes diagrams & terminology of stone cuts & facets, pearl lengths & styles and jewelry designs. PLUS there are diagrams of "signature" markings.There is also a section on "Watch Outs" for FRAUDULENT copies. As a novice collector, I found this to be just what I need to be knowledgable and also to alert me when sellers don't know what they're talking about. This is a book you want to READ AND LOOK at the pretty pictures. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 21, 1999

    Really disappointed

    I was just so very disappointed. I suppose I was expecting much more information and detail, for example the time periods, or the designer. I also was disappointed in the quality of pictures because they were somewhat dark and so I couldnt enjoy any of the dazzle or sparkle that I have seen in other pictures. My biggest complaint is that I did not like the way it was organized. It was overwhelming in the same way a 30 page menu is. I suppose I was expecting specific information on designers by chapter instead of a chapter on bracelets, earrings, etc. Even if the chapters were listed by time period it would have been more informative. I purchased this book solely based on the reviews but it felt like I went to a movie because the critics raved about it and after the movie I was still wondering what the big hooplah was about. I was expecting details and not personal opinion. I'm surprising myself by taking the time to write this because I'm not usually such a critic, but I was... 2/5 Camille (Ohio) - See all my reviews This review is from: Inside the Jewelry Box, Vol. 2: A Collector's Guide to Costume Jewelry: Identification and Values (Inside the Jewelry Box: A Collector's Guide to Costume Jewelry) (Paperback) I was just so very disappointed.

    A Must Have for Anny Serious Collector of Costume Jewelry

    An invaluable asset for any collector of vintage costume jewelry. The book is well written and well researched with hundreds of beautiful close-up photographs showing the detail of some really amazing works of art. Many of the pieces in the book have photos showing the reverse side and the designers mark.The book has chapters with the pieces grouped by designer, which is a real time saver if you want to look up a particular designer. There are also chapters where the jewelry is grouped by quality, showing only the more expensive pieces. Plus, there are several beautiful pictures of vintage ads.A really useful section is the one that list about thirty-five Internet Websites offering vintage costume jewelry for sale. If you are a dealer, like my wife, this is really helpful when pricing items for sale. She has an online shop where she sells vintage costume jewelry and artisan jewelry that she makes.

    A sparkling gallery of treasures

    "Vintage Jewelry: A Price and Identification Guide, 1920-1940s," by Leigh Leshner, is a visually stunning reference work. The back cover notes that the book features more than 1,000 pieces. The emphasis is on pieces made with white metal and rhinestones. Included in the book are some special sections on the following topics: the history of rhinestones, cuts and shapes of rhinestones, settings used to hold rhinestones, types of metal used in jewelry, and suggestions for collecting jewelry. The bulk of the book is a price and identification guide: a huge gallery of full-color photos with descriptive text.Overall, this is a beautiful and informative book, but I felt that at certain points the text needed tighter editing. Pictured are many different types of jewelry: fur clips, brooches, necklaces, bracelets, earrings, etc. The pieces shown employ many different styles and motifs: birds, floral designs, Art Deco designs, filigree work, butterflies, whimsical human... 4/5 Michael J.

    Where was the editor?

    0 2/5 Amazon Customer (Stamford, CT United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Vintage Jewelry: A Price and Identification Guide, 1920-1940s (Paperback) Sorry to disagree with everyone, but I am greatly displeased with this book. The pictures are beautiful! But there are only eleven pages of text, in very large type, and with a lot of pictures there too. Which means there is very, very, very little information. And in that small amount of information, I found several inaccuracies, therefore I can't TRUST any of the information I DON'T recognize as being inaccurate. There are very few mentions of famous designers, but two of their names are misspelled. An oval rhinestone is the same shape as a marquise rhinestone, it says. There are TWO pictures which each contain three similar-but-different items, where the captions in both cases say that the picture shows three IDENTICAL items. And the price listings are SO MUCH higher than what I see on even the highest priced web sites or jewelry shows in the New York area. Umm, pretty pictures though. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 19, 2003

    Not For Beginners

    0 3/5 Elizabeth A. Miller (Midwest) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Antique & Collectible Buttons: Identification & Values, Vol. 2 (Hardcover) While I'm sure this is a helpful book for the serious and advanced collector, it isn't for the beginner, which I am. I didn't see anything in it's description that would have let me know that, so I wasted my money. I am not a collector and never will be; I'm just a beginner button sorter, breaking up big collections and selling individual buttons, pairs or sets. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 8, 2007

This review is from: Antique & Collectible Buttons: Identification & Values, Vol. 2 (Hardcover) This book has a great mix of attainable buttons! Also some that are ART and I think she just put them in for fun. I love how she put the approximate values on the same page as the buttons.

    Almost Perfect.......but missed the mark

    0 4/5 maggie denmark (Florida) - See all my reviews This review is from: Vintage & Vogue Ladies Compacts Identification & Value Guide, Second Edition (Hardcover) From the opening page to almost the middle of the book is absolutely wonderful! The photographs are exquisitely done in color, the descriptions are complete & there are usually no more than 4-6 photos per page. Suddenly, it stops and the reader is left with pages filled with very small, black & white photos and wondering "What the heck happened??" The smaller compacts should have been the ones in the larger pictures and they are screaming for color! As for the educational & reference content, this book is hard to beat and will make an excellent tool for reading about the mechanisms of vintage compacts. Plus, the variety of compacts is mind-boggling! Recommended purchase but don't expect 100% satisfaction with the photographs & layouts. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 12, 2001
