Rate this:
Throughout history jewellery has expressed a multitude of meanings - social position, marital status, self-esteem. Richly elaborate or elegantly simple, Native American beadwork, Turkoman silver, Burmese jade and other examples of ethnic jewellery are avidly sought by collectors. This book reveals the full splendours and the subtle meanings behind the finely crafted works of art in one of the world's finest private collections of ethnic jewellery - that of Colette and Jean-Pierre Ghysels, which has until now remained carefully protected in Brussels, never exhibited extensively, and accessible only to selected scholars.
