    Needed to know how to care for my amber jewelry, plus some other types of stone jewelry and this book
    answered all my questions. I also got one for my sister-in-law as she is a jewelry collector too. It’s great!

    I find the photos exceptional….and the variety as well…As I too have a passion for jewelry, I do find a few things in the book that don’t seem to have been really looked into, and some suggestions for care …not researched really well… But all in all it is a very good book and has given me a slew of ideas on pieces I have and some valuable background info…so Voila ! and Merci,
