The rise of rhinestones and glass beads from the glass industry in Bohemia and Austria is traced as a clamor grew in the mid-twentieth century for more costume jewelry. Popular jewelry designers used innovations in the shapes and colors of the stones to produce a wide variety of new effects, providing women with flashy yet affordable jewelry. This classic book has an updated price guide. Hundreds of fine costume jewelry pieces designed by Boucher, Hattie Carnegie, Ciner, Coro, de Lillo, Eisenberg, Kramer, Lane, Mazer, Schiaparelli, Schreiner, Warner, Weiss, and others are on display in this book.
