About this book
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.

    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 "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. She's starting to incorporate some vintage parts and pieces from... 5/5 Books Etcetera - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Vintage Costume Jewelry-Unsigned and Still Beautiful!

    0 5/5 "birc0021" (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.

    Good Pics

    0 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. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 13, 2002

    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

    Collectible Costume Jewelry

    0 2/5 Mysterymaven (Los Angeles, CA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Collectible Costume Jewelry (Collectible Costume Jewelry: Identification & Value Guide) (Paperback) This is such a useless guide to collecting costume jewelry that it astounds me that this book is still being published. I do applaud the fact that the photos are in full color. However, the illustrated pieces are mediocre and totally uninteresting examples considering the extraordinary range of vintage costume jewelry that has been produced over the years. Unlike most of the books on the subject, this one lacks any substantive information on the history and designers of costume jewelry. Save your money, and buy any of the higher-rated collecting guides to vintage costume jewelry. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 12, 2004

    The Bottom of the Barrel

    0 1/5 Asciigod - See all my reviews This review is from: Collectible Costume Jewelry (Collectible Costume Jewelry: Identification & Value Guide) (Paperback) I didn't buy this book from Amazon, in fact I probably picked up it used somewhere for pennies years ago.Even after all these years, the horribleness of this book haunts me. It compels me to write this review. Strength in numbers - the more reviews the better to warn you.Skip this book. The pictures are nice, and in color, but there is absolutely NO CONTEXT given. It's comically useless. Random prices are given next to brief (1 fragmented sentence brief) item descriptions that offer no insight into marks, special features, or anything used to determine these values, or identify the value of the pieces themselves.Unfortunately, an absolutely empty "resource." 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 13, 2006

    So-so Sarah Cov book

    Based of the reviews (sadly, only a few) of books on Sarah Coventry jewelry, this was the least offensive it seems, so I cautiously purchased it. I would have been far more impressed with the book if there were not at least two mis-identified pieces. When you are to the point of printing a book about something factual, maybe having ALL of the identifications should be correct. Comparing the items to my Sarah Cov catalogs, I cannot even understand how one of them was mis-identified--description and all--other than poor editing. I would not be this upset if the book only cost me $10 but I expect 100% correct AND no "guessed" names based on another similar piece--another very disappointing feature. Without having all catalogs from the company existence, how do I know that some others are not mis-identified?! Why bother to put it in the book if it is not double checked, verified, ummm CORRECT? Lastly one piece that is unidentified, I see all of the time with its correct name...not sure... 3/5 KELLY F DEVLIN (valparaiso, in United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Helpful For Collectors

    0 4/5 Colene M. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Sarah Coventry Jewelry (Schiffer Book for Collectors) (Paperback) This has been the most helpful book I have purchased for identifying Sarah Coventry jewelry. The pros are that it has many lovely pictures listed with the associated names and some description of the pieces. The author also has pictures of Sarah's catalog pages in 1969, 1972, and 1982 which can been read with a magnifying glass. The cons are that if you are looking for specific earrings, bracelets, or necklaces, there are several different places in the book where you must look. This book is not as efficient and organized as it could be. Also, the author has numerous pages on 'Signets', which do not help the collector. Overall it is the best I have purchased, but it is still time-consuming to identify pieces and lacking in organization. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 17, 2010
