Описание: Throughout the 20th century, jewellery revealed the behind-the-scenes stories and the plot twists and turns in the real lives of celebrities that will always be larger than life. Some of the world's most fabulous jewels not only illustrated power and status in society but these magical gems held tremendous sentimental value as they were linked to the most significant moments and memories of Hollywood royalty, international aristocracy and international icons of style. If These Jewels Could Talk offers a glimpse into the jewellery boxes of these celebrities - the personal tastes, heartfelt anecdotes and the true tales of the women who wore and collected the pieces.
During the early- to mid-20th century, a majority of screen actresses requested to wear their own favourite pieces in films. This offered a peek into some the great jewellers of the time who were designing for women who could choose anything. Actresses such as Merle Oberon, Paulette Goddard, Joan Crawford, Grace Kelly and Elizabeth Taylor as well as icons such as Jackie Kennedy and The Duchess of Windsor created signature styles for which they became known and which influenced generations of women, becoming part of our collective consciousness.
The 20s through the 50s were a time when the renowned jewellery houses were also celebrities in their own right. They mixed with the socialites and royalty they bejewelled.
In films, jewellery clearly developed and defined a character's personality - as it did in real life - whether it be a rags-to-riches story or those that figured into the plot: for example, a Cartier bracelet in Alfred Hitchcock's Lifeboat, or a Harry Winston necklace in Notorious.
Whether on or off screen, worn by the famed and the legendary, and designed by the most revered houses of the day, all of these jewels take us on a narrative journey that provide fascinating insight into the intriguing worlds of early Hollywood and nobility from the 1920s through today.

Описание: In Italy there has always been a tradition of making jewellery from semi-precious metal, as copies or prototypes of fine jewellery pieces. 'Designed for Fashion: Italian Jewellery from 1950' moves chronologically through the last 100 years, with pieces from the beginning of the 20th century, through to the years spent under fascist rule, when pieces had to be strictly made with local material such as wood, cork, straw, venetian glass and coral. The 50s and 60s allowed for the very first big names in fashion jewellery to arise: Giuliano Fratti, Emma Caimi Pellini, Coppola e Toppo, Luciana de Reutern, Canesi, Ornella... The book reserves a special place for an important phenomenon that took place in Milan at the end of the 1970s - 'Made in Italy' - when Italian fashion entered - and dominated - the international scene, and Italian designers such as Armani, Versace, Ferre, Moschino and Prada found incredible success all over the world. Throughout the eighties and nineties, and well into the year 2000 further names in fashion jewellery were pushed to the fore: Ugo Correani, Sharra Pagano, Carlo Zini, Angela Caputi, Maria Calderara, Giorgio Vigna, Fabio Cammarata, Emilio Cressoni, Robert Tomas, Irene Moret, Silvia Beccaria, among others. The final section of the book is devoted to new talents, selecting ten designers whose jewels are particularly interesting and innovative. This section also contains lists of the major museums, galleries, schools and magazines in Europe that are dedicated to contemporary jewellery, illustrating that the line dividing the contemporary artist's studio jewellery from contemporary fashion jewellery is becoming more and more difficult to define. 'Designed for Fashion: Italian Jewellery from 1950' applies special focus to the most important, interesting pieces, through both period images taken from exclusive fashion magazines, and through stunning photographs of actual pieces, resulting in almost 400 illustrations. Famous houses that the jewellery was made for include: Bijoux Bozart, Biki, Carlo Zini, Chanel, Chloe, Coppla E Toppo, Edoardo Saronni, Emilio Pucci, Etro, Fiorucci, Flos Ad Florem, Gianfranco Ferre, Giorgio Armani, Giuliano Fratti, Irene Galitzine, Karl Lagerfeld, Luciana De Reutern, Marni, Missoni, Misterfox, Moschino, Prada, Roberto Capucci, Schiaparelli, Sharra Pagano, Ugo Correani, Unger, Valentino, Versace.

Описание: Throughout history, flowers have been the inspiration for jewellers and the people who wore their creations. Gabrielle Chanel's favourite flower was the camellia and since the 1920s the flower has become incorporated into every aspect of the house's designs. Christian Dior favoured the lily of the valley and made it the centre of his 1954 collection. The rose de noel, which blooms in winter, has become synonymous with van Cleef and Arpel. This gorgeous volume highlights hundreds of examples of the finest floral jewellery ever made. Divided into four seasons - and the flowers that bloom in them - this book explores the history of flowers in the fine jewellery world and features dazzling illustrations, original sketches and gouache paintings showing how these blooms have been translated into pieces that are both priceless and ageless. The jewellery editor of British Vogue, Carol Woolton, offers expert insights into fashion history and trends. She explores the Belle Epoque, styles of the 1940s and the re-interpretations of iconic pieces. From original bejewelled botanical pieces by master jewellers such as Rene Lalique and Peter Carl Faberge, to the splendour of Cartier's orchids and fanciful imaginative flowers by contemporary designers such as Victoire de Castellane. The book also features magical floral pieces by Joel Arthur Rosenthal, acknowledged as the world's greatest jeweller, who has contributed a foreword for the book. These fanciful ornaments will entice collectors and dreamers alike

Описание: The end of the First World War left much of Europe faced with an entirely new political and social situation: absolute monarchy was consigned to the dustbin
of history and essays in democracy were the order of the day. The changed conditions and the new way of life associated with them required new forms of expression in music, dance,
architecture and painting - and of course also in design. There France had led the field since the ground-breaking 1925 Exposition International des Arts Decoratifs et Industriels
Modernes in Paris.
Germany had not even been invited to that world exhibition - the effects of the Great War that had only ended a few years previously were still being felt.All
great jewellery-designers were strongly committed to the Art Deco style, which featured astringent sophistication in design and choice of materials: jewellers such as Cartier, Boucheron,
Rene Lalique, Georges Fouquet and designers such as Jean Despres and Rene Boivin. From about 1928, this canon of forms occurs both in the work of Naum Slutzky at the Bauhaus
and the German jewellery industry as represented by Theodor Fahrner Nachf. Gustav Brandle in Pforzheim and Jakob Bengel in Idar-Oberstein.
