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

    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. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 21, 1999

    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 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?

    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.

    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

    Not For Beginners

    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.

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. I'm going to buy Volume 1 as well.

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

    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.
