Emerald

Twenty-one Centuries of Jewelled Opulence and Power

Par Jonathan Self et Joanna Hardy

Ouvrage en anglais 

"Lavishly illustrated and exquisitely designed, this book opens with stunning images of style icons – historic and modern – wearing their favourite emerald jewelry.

As befits a prized gemstone that is twenty times rarer than diamond, here we see together, for the first time, pieces worn by celebrities ranging from filmstars to royalty, all alongside classic images of emeralds from art, advertising and fashion, celebrated in a text by Franca Sozzani, editor of Vogue Italia.

The second part of this major volume showcases more than forty of the world’s most significant and famous pieces of emerald jewelry, including many previously unseen designs from private and royal collections. Historic creations that are up to 5,500 years old are represented alongside all the modern jewelry houses. The third and final part of Emerald tells the story of the emerald trade from mine to market, illustrated with specially commissioned photography taken across four continents."

'Stunningly illustrated, with contributions from Vogue Italia editor Franca Sozzani, author Jonathan Self and jewelry specialist Joanna Hardy, Emerald the book promises to showcase this storied stone in extraordinary detail'
