In thematic chapters featuring exceptional pieces from each artist's extraordinary oeuvre, the book explores their conceptual approach, provenance of materials, quality of design, composition, and workmanship, revealing what makes these creations not only coveted objects of exceptional value but also works of art.Joel Arthur Rosenthal founded JAR, his Paris jewelry company on the Place Vendôme, in 1978. JAR jewels are renowned for their superb sense of color and remarkable craftsmanship-but above all for their fearless beauty.
