In this comprehensive study of Renaissance jewellery, the first substantial work of its kind, Yvonne Hackenbroch brings to the subject not only her own highly specialized knowledge, but historical discipline. The book is arranged into various countries of origin; a form which serves to mirror the emergence of the Renaissance style in Italy, its spread into the rest of Europe and its eclipse before the outbreak of the Thirty Years' War. Over one thousand jewels are illustrated, some well-known and others never before published, together with portraits, engravings and drawings. Illustrated with 45 color plates (each with several items) and over 900 black and white illustrations.
