The Duchess of Windsor, Ava Gardner, Joan Crawford, socialite Barbara Hutton, and the German Princes von Thurn und Taxis, as this gorgeously illustrated book shows, all amassed spectacular collections of jewelry. Here, for the first time, is a public viewing of fabulous bracelets, necklaces, rings, brooches, and earrings owned by the rich and famous -- along with a peek into the glamorous lives behind these glittering collections.

Two international jewelry experts who have handled countless auctions of fine jewelry from private estates tell how the collections of Mary Pickford, Merle Oberon, King Umberto II of Italy, and Rubenstein, among others, came into being, and which jewelers these collectors favored. This is a book for everyone interested in society, collecting, and the finest of jewelry.
