Once again Hutton Wilkinson has given us another magnificent book that is simply exceptional in every respect. It is without a doubt one of the most beautiful books I have seen with incredible pictures of amazing and one of a kind pieces of jewelry that are each truly works of art. Wilkinson's text is wonderful as always and no expense is spared in the detail of each page. It's a pleasure to admire the work of Wilkinson and his late business partner Tony Duquette. Once again Hutton Wilkinson demonstrates that he has the eye, skill, and talent to create something that will last forever. This is NOT a coffee table book as much as I think it to be a work of art just as the photographs of some of the most incredible jewelry captured within these pages is revealed in a tasteful and pleasing manner. Highly recommended!

This book is a good value for the money. Lavish photography - interesting backgrounds. You can't compare this jewelry with something produced by a master jeweler such as Lalique. A lot of the pieces look kind of thrown together and primitive. Some of the massive rock chunk necklaces look like a refined "Flintstones" piece. Mr. Wilkinson is a delightful, flamboyant eccentric and raconteur. His books are always entertaining and informative. There is a gorgeous emerald and pearl necklace on his website that should have been included in this collection. A few pieces are extraordinary - many of the pieces are big and colorful, but not especially unique.

Tony Duquette is not a household name, but he should be. His whimsical, fantastic, organic baubles rendered in exotic jewels are magical objects of fantasy. It was interesting as well to read about his career as a set and costume designer for stage and screen, not to mention his glorious houses. Kudos to the fabulous Hutton Wilkinson for keeping Mr. Duquette's magnificent creations alive via this book, and Mr. Wilkinson's own works of art.

Beautiful and inspirational! Being a maker of baubles myself, this is a wonderful resource. It is also a great go to for making me smile. Highly recommended.

I must-have if you own all the previous books on Tony Duquette: luscious new pieces and great text. I'm giving this to several friends this Christmas, it's so gorgeous!! The designs are like Verdura's pieces gone all Hollywood!!!

This book not only explores the genius of Duquette and Wilkinson but the photography is outstanding. I couldn't put it down.
