Format: Hardcover
"The Art of Buying Jewelry" is a well-written and informative guide for anyone who already appreciates jewelry, as well as someone who is just beginning to build a collection. It even offers advice on how to avoid being swindled when buying jewelry abroad. I love how each chapter begins with a short story or vignette.

This book is an excellent guide for those who want to learn more about buying fine jewelry. It is filled with information ranging from purchasing diamonds, precious stones and pearls to building a relationship with jewelry and creating your own style. This is a great pocket guide to carry along on your next shopping trip. Also, I bought several copies as Christmas presents for my family...it would make a great gift to go along with a piece of jewelry for someone special...or stocking stuffer! Enjoy...the pictures are wonderful.

Format: Paperback
I purchased this book at a book release party and have found it to be a jewelry reference book that is designed and written for people who appreciate fine jewelry and want to learn more about it. Filled with information from diamond and gemstone buying to shopping overseas and building a jewelry wardrobe, this is book with a wealth of information.

I just received my hardcover in the mail today......
I first thought the book would be a bit larger, its very small! the pages are very thin and you can see the print & photos thru the pages. The photography is amazing but lack luster because they're not printed on glossy paper. the beautiful photography & spectacular jewelry is lost on what looks like something you printed off your home computer. What a huge disappointment! And I paid $25 with shipping & taxes, for a book that measures 8 1/2"H x 5 1/2"W. & no high gloss paper. Even store gardening magazines have gloss pages! Such a dis justice To Lindy Kavanaugh and Susan Scarborough for their hard work putting this together.
