Collecting Victorian Jewellery
By Mary Peter
review by 
Kristin Lizewski


Collecting Victorian Jewellery appeals to those not only interested in jewelry but also to those who like to know the roots of fashion in history.  Author Mary Peter lets her reader know in the foreword that fashion and jewelry are frequently influenced by each other, so as times change, the fashion and consequently the jewelry changes with it.

With that in mind, the book educates readers not only on Victorian jewelry but on why pieces came about the way they did, who was responsible for them, and the impact they have made on the creation of jewelry today.

Overall the book is targeted at collectors. There are chapters devoted to women's, men's and children's jewelry, also tourists' jewelry, devotional and sentimental jewelry.

If you're a history buff like me, this book won't let you down.
