Coveted

(Inbunden)
Beskrivning:

The first comprehensive book on jewelry as an art form showcases a collection of today's most exclusive jewelers

When does jewelry transcend the category of fashion accessory to become art? Coveted provides a vital survey of the most innovative creations in jewelry design, profiling 75 the most prominent designers working today.

Through exceptional pieces from each artist's extraordinary oeuvre, the book explores their conceptual approach, provenance of materials, quality of design, composition, and workmanship, revealing what makes these creations not only coveted objects of exceptional value but also works of art.

Beautiful color photography illustrates the profiled designers - some never-before-seen - each image accompanied by an informative caption.

Coveted is separated into 5 thematic chapters covering key approaches and the most relevant issues for contemporary high jewelry, including Modernism; the cultural exchange between East and West and its effect on design; the evolution and meaning of innovative materials; the natural world as inspiration and he growing empowerment of women, both as designers and consumers.

Packaged in an incredible luxury pearlescent paper cover with foil-stamping, Coveted presents a dazzling entree for anyone who has ever paused by the windows of Tiffany's around breakfast time.
