Secrets to Collecting Jewelry Book Review

Guest Author - Diane Geisel

Some books you purchase just for the “read” but this book is a keeper! You won’t want to part with it and will refer to it again and again!

Interestingly written, photographed and organized I specifically find the section dedicated to “Periods and Styles” indispensable. It clearly defines and gives tips to allow the user to narrow down the period a jewelry piece comes from. Loaded with other tips regarding determining the materials used, hallmarks, and findings helps any novice jewelry collector make a well informed choice. Published in 2005, the information contained within the book is timely.

Examples of specific types of jewelry, including materials and styles make this the text book reference of choice. The perfect size of this book allows it to be used in the field where it is needed. Leigh Leshner draws upon her extensive knowledge and allows everyone to benefit from her experience. She truly delivers with Secrets to Collecting Jewelry, How to BUY MORE for Less!

Sampling from the Table of Contents:

Where to buy

Myths, Misconceptions and Helpful Hints

This book contains more than 475 color photos imparting a wonderful visual representation of pieces from specific time periods and countries of origin. Dollar amounts accompany pieces to give the user a frame of reference when making purchasing decisions. From Sautoirs to Slave bracelets you will find it here and everything in-between. Not sure what a Negligee is?? Just turn to the section: Examples of Specific types of jewelry, materials and styles, and contained within are definitions and photos to this many other types of jewelry jargon.

Whether your venue of choice is at a yard sale, estate sale, auction, online or at a flea market Leigh offers tips and good bargaining techniques that will enhance your purchasing experience.
