500 Gemstone Jewels is the tenth in the series of jewelry collection books that I have purchased. I find the book to be beautifully photographed and printed, not too many words. A great way to get an idea of what is being done with gemstones by jewelry designers around the world. It is nice to see that so many of my peers have pieces featured in this book.

Another genius addition to Lark's 500 Series, "Gemstone Jewels" is a visual feast. This book brings together some of the most talented stone cutters, jewelers, and jewelry designers working today. The gemstones themselves are simply gorgeous and the artisans work will inspire you. Anyone who loves jewelry will love this book!

I am not a jewel driven kind of gal - most of my money goes into art supplies and the comfy clothing that I chose to wear is not conducive to wearing too many jewels. Paint and glue would not be compatible with the unearthly beauty of the gems and jewelry displayed in this beautiful book! That being said - if I could have jewels such as the ones in this book I might take a second look at my clothes and make myself fit to wear these amazing pieces. Ah! To be wealthy enough to be able to collect some of this art-to-wear.

As I have mentioned before - I am a big fan of Lark Books publications and their compendiums are generally the best of the best. This is no exception to that rule. The jewelry that is displayed in this book is all pure eye candy and is sure to bring out the lust for personal adornment even to those of us who generally don't have a yen for bling - like me. This book is chock full of the latest and the greatest in modern jeweled adornment.You will find everything from pins, earrings, necklaces, bracelets and rings to odder things like a contact lens that is filled with gems - alien looking to be sure and I wonder how long it would be comfortable in your eye - but it looks great in the photo! There are small 'Earth Spirit Guides, small sculptures, airy tiaras fit for the highest of debutantes. Mostly though this is a book about personal adornment - haute jewels as it were. With few exceptions I would be over the moon to be able to own any of the glorious examples in this book. The photography - as is always the case with Lark Books is superb. There was nothing to do but give it 5 stars for being a book that I will take great pleasure at looking at over and over again - no, I don't think I can give this one up! Kudos to Lark and to the amazing artists that are featured in this book!

This is a gorgeous book, filled with amazing pieces and beautiful photography. It covers from traditional fine jewelry to avant guarde pieces, from diamonds in the rough to the most beautiful of coloured gems. There is something in here for everyone and a lot of inspirational pieces.

Another must have from Lark.

500 Gemstone Jewels provides a fine jewelry survey perfect for libraries strong in jewelry and crafts, offering insights and designs by some of today's top designers. Close-up color photos of gemstones used in a range of settings showcase both gems and designs, making for a lush presentation perfect for any crafts and arts collection. The wealth of color photos and discussions of stones and settings is outstanding.

As with most of the lark 500 series, this is a compendium of gorgeous work filled with gemstones in all sorts of varieties and clever settings. Another beautiful coffee table book of inspiration. As with all these books - there are no instructions, projects or techniques - it is JUST pictures of lots of different work. Lots of work not seen in any other books too, which is nice.
Recommend, it ranks high in the 500 series. (There is also lots of brilliant metalwork - its not just gemstones, although they do, of course, feature highly).

Eye-candy galore! This is my favorite Lark 500 book because the level of craftsmanship is very high and there are not so many wacko pieces you couldn't or wouldn't ever want to wear or buy. Fewer juvenile "I'm making a really deep important statement for my graduate thesis project" pieces than other Lark books. Just beautiful and unusual pieces by master jewelers.
