In this beautiful book, Olivier Dupon introduces the finest modern jewelers practising today. Featuring 108 both up-and-coming and established designers, the book is inspired not by traditional jewelry typology, but by style and look. Rough stones appear with exquisitely faceted gems; organic forms vie with geometric structures; feathers and leather take their place next to platinum and diamonds.
The book showcases fine jewelry, fashion jewelry, luxe jewelry, conceptual jewelry, and much much more.
Over 800 mainly colour photographs display the jewelry alongside portraits of the designers at work, shots of sketches and works in progress, studios and boutiques. Complete with short, informative profiles and useful contact details for the designers, as well as a listing of recommended shops, this publication offers a wealth of inspiring material and is a must for any aficionado of jewelry, design or craft.
'A casket full of future classics... The role of this book is to provide the new generation of jewelers with a red carpet so that we can celebrate them in all their well - deserved fame'
