A great book but not enough info on earrings,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Mexican Silver Jewelry Details (Hardcover)
This is a great coffee table book with great photos. However, the reference information in the book is lacking. Although some pictured items have price ranges offered, many, many of the photos do not have price ranges associated with them. In addition, out of 300 pages, I was very disappointed that there were only 4 pages devoted to earrings, and with no price ranges offered. The vast majority of jewelry in this book consists of brooches, pendants, bracelets and necklaces. Earrings are a big part of any type of jewelry and there was little to none in this book. It also doesn't explain the eagle mark and what the assigned numbers to the eagle marks mean. What is "pre-eagle"? When did they start using the eagle marks? No explanation. I bought this book in used condition for a fraction of the retail cost which made the purchase worth it to me. If I had bought it new, it would not have been worth the $90 retail price tag given the lack of info mentioned above and the little or no information on or photos of earrings.
