Photographs illustrate examples of elaborate techniques such as chasing, enamelling and cameo carving and the use of unexpected materials such as jet, marcasite and steel, as well as the full range of precious stones. The pages sparkle with diamonds, emeralds, rubies and fine examples of the goldsmiths' art. Famous peices such as the Armada Jewel, jewels belonging to the Russan imperial family and to May Morris are highlighted and described in details.
