The Art of Jewellery: Ancient to Modern Period

H. Clifford Smith (Author)
Synopsis The book Art of Jewellery is richly illustrated and fully documented study of Jewellery produced during the successive periods. Research on the subject falls into four main divisions. The first deals with the jewellery worn during classical times, and until the ninth century. The second treats the jewels of the middle ages. The third is devoted to the jewels of the Renaissance and the fourth includes those of subsequent times. An introduction of Indian Jewellery traces its development from the period of Harappan culture. Different types of Jewellery were designed and used depending upon the part of the body. Every region in the country has its own tradition in jewellery. The standard of craftsmanship everywhere is, however, of a high order. The jewellery played an important role as adornment, as a sign of wealth, and a glow of the royal image through out the centuries. The book is an invaluable work of reference for research scholars and readers.
