Summary
Men's jewellery has a long and fascinating history, with storied houses, famous patrons and a diverse range of modern designers. Behind each tiny piece often lies a complex narrative of patronage, personality and craftsmanship. Drawing on his expertise on men's style and insider's knowledge of the jewellery industry, men's style aficionado James Sherwood tells the story of men's relationship with jewellery and presents the contemporary artisans who keep the art alive. Through thematic chapters, works by key jewellers are profiled and richly illustrated, including pieces by Tiffany & Co., David Yurman, Cartier, Boucheron and Ara Vartanian. Hundreds of exquisite photographs, many specially commissioned, of rings, cufflinks, studs, pins, slides, bracelets, chains and pendants chart changing fashions and evolving attitudes to men's jewellery over the centuries
