Destined to become must-have visual sourcebooks for all those who love fashion, the Vogue Portfolio series continues with Vogue: The Jewellery by Vogue's jewellery editor, Carol Woolton.
From couture to costume jewellery, the brilliant pieces featured on the pages of British Vogue for almost a century have encapsulated the fashion zeitgeist of each new age for which they were created. Adorning princesses and rock chicks alike, the jewels shown here reveal a dazzling array of styles and moods - from fairy-tale romance to Jazz-age glamour, sculptural modernism to timeless elegance. On every page sumptuous jewellery is the star of the show, nourishing dreams in us all. In Vogue: The Jewellery Carol Woolton has curated a collection of more than 300 fabulous images and grouped them into five thematic chapters: Show-stoppers, Rock Chick, Minimalist, Exotic and Classical. From fantastical diamond-encrusted tiaras and intricate jet chokers to sculptural silver cuffs and the purity of a simple string of pearls, the book provides an evocative celebration of a century of magical jewellery, while also showcasing the work of British Vogue's very best photographers including Norman Parkinson, Mario Testino, Anthony Denney, David Bailey, Arthur Elgort, Corinne Day, Cecil Beaton, Bruce Weber and Tim Walker.
