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.

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 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

    0 5/5 Rebecca R. Hadley "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. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 3, 1999

The text offers the occasional sprinkling of historical information, comments, or insights about costume jewelry as well. A highly recommended treasury for collectors. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 9, 2007

    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.

    0 5/5 "wishbury" - See all my reviews This review is from: Costume Jewelry a Practical Handbook & Value Guide (Hardcover) As a newbie in the costume jewelry field, I was at first intimidated by this book. So big, beautiful, and all those names -- Eisenberg, Caviness, Lisner, Weiss -- I never thought I'd get them straight. But Mr. Razazadeh does a phenomenal job of explaining each designer, giving hints on how to care for costume jewelry (boy, did I need that advice), and for presenting the most beautiful photographs of stunning pieces. I learned a great deal from this book. I hope Mr. Razazadeh writes another book soon! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 30, 2001

    Amazon Verified Purchase Overall, the commentary in this book in wonderful. But the photography leaves something to be desired. Some of the photos are too dark to be very beneficial in identifying the items. Many are just not up to the quality which one would expect in a publication of this topic. Where's the sparkle in the stones? Why is the metal so dull looking? I'm happy to have the book, but found the photography a big disappointment. Comment Was this review helpful to you? Yes No 7 of 7 people found the following review helpful Good book for a casual collector By Gagewyn on December 7, 2004 This book provides a short introductory section on cleaning buying selling etc and then write ups on different jewelry companies. The introduction is good for people with little information about caring for jewelry: displaying, cleaning, storing and repairing. It is sometimes humorous, as when Rezazadeh describes the meticulous procedure he goes through to clean his jewelry and then recalls discovering that his wife cleaned her jewelry by scrubbing it with a tooth brush and then blow drying it. There is also a bit about apraising and the supply and demand at work. I doubt that this is a book for dealers, because they presumably already have good resources and knowledge. The body of the book has short entries on different jewelry companies. About a page is dedicated to each, but there are sometimes two to a page and sometimes four or five pages to a widely spread company. Each company gets a short write up and photo of some jewelry pieces. The photos are good, but obviously not full page. They are enough to oo and ah over. Each photo has a caption describing the jewelry and giving an estimate for price it would cost. Companies are grouped into European and imported depending on where they were located. There are also sections on unmarked jewelry. These are grouped by how they are made (enamel, Austrian crystal, plastic, etc.). Since there is no company these sections ha

He did not concentrate on all the "famous names" like Eisenberg, etc. but had something to say about the "lesser knowns" which is what most of us see. Lots of pictures was wonderful, but I wish that the photos had not been so dark-it was hard to see details on some of them. I would still buy this book, however.
