Costume Jewelry 
 A Practical Handbook and Value Guide
By  Fred Rezazadeh 
Review by Kristin Lizewski 

Following a wide overview of costume jewelry, including what is and what is not considered ‘costume’ jewelry, and including how to clean and repair the jewelry, the practical handbook and guide covers jewelry from the early 1900’s all the way through today.

An entire chapter covers the A through Z’s of American Costume Jewelry, including beautiful pictures of such pieces like a diamond brooch depicting a sea creature by Ann, all the way to a Weiss bow tie choker made of rhinestones. 

A latter chapter covers imported costume jewelry, including gorgeous pictures of Australian, German, Italian, and Oriental jewelry among others. The pictures included will dazzle any collector’s eye, and the information given is very useful for those who wish to know more about what they wear around their wrist, or dangling from their ears. 

This book shows where those pieces originated from and how we get the shining pieces we wear today!
