Format: Paperback
As stated in my review of the author's "Avon Jewelry" book, these authors did not do their research and only described the items as gold, metal, rhodium, silver, pearl, etc. They did not give the in-depth information that collectors are looking to acquire.

I'll give a few examples:

(1) on page 86; the authors described the set of earrings as "Rhodium clip-on earrings" when Sarah Coventry named the line as "Fan Fare;"

(2) on page 107, the authors describe the item as "Rhodium pin" even though Sarah Coventry named the pin as their "Silvery Mist" line; and

(3) on page 32, the authors describe the item as "Gold metal necklace and bracelet" when Sarah Coventry named the line as "Chantilly Lace."

So, how much research did I do as compared with these authors?

When a person writes a book, people expect thorough research, not just pretty pictures. Yes, the book does have pretty pictures, but I've got the jewelry and wanted the information, not just pictures.

I wanted a Sarah Coventry Jewelry book to help me identify and describe the collectible Sarah Coventry Jewelry that I have found at various estate sales, and thought this book could help. I was definitely mistaken. Did the authors do any research? I think not. Will I ever be so stupid as to purchase another one of their books? No way! I would resale this book, but I don't want another person to be as disappointed as I was when I purchased this book on-line; not to mention that at the same time, I also purchased their waste of writing book entitled, "Avon Collectible Fashion Jewelry and Awards."

My suggestion to anyone wishing to write books on Avon or Sarah Coventry jewelry is to do your research.

Format: Paperback
Without repeating myself, I would just like to say that I agree with everything that the above person said about the book. I was disappointed to find a "collection" of pictures with several repeats and no names even attached to the items. I could have put together a book like this with my own Sarah Coventry jewelry!!

I agree with the two previous reviews. Also, I would have liked to have seen smaller but more pictures and information regarding names of the jewelry, years sold, and available pieces in the sets. The authors should have done much more research before publishing. This is more of a paperback, photographic 'coffee table' book than a help to collectors.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A real Waste. This book was purchased for dating and naming information. Which it does not have. It has nothing but pictures (well, okay, a COUPLE of items have date references and names). The book wasn't cheap and the information I was searching for was not there. I actually noticed in one place where the item pictured was NOT the name referenced. Someone who is really in the know needs to write a book with ALL the information pertaining to the Sarah Coventry Jewelry items. The prices listed were completely unrealistic and not the going market prices on these jewelry pieces. NEW*******December 2012-Published by Schiffer. Sandra Sturdivant has co-written the absolute BEST book on Sarah Coventry Jewelry, with the help of Bill Stuart (original owner's son) and original company records. I recommend This book at ANY price! A real must have.
