KIRKUS REVIEW

The popularity of The House of Jewels at the N.Y. World's Fair, indicates a more general interest in this subject than might have been expected. Here is the definitive book on the history, legend, drama and story of jewels and jewelry, from the prehistoric days of Egypt and Babylonia on down to the present. Following the historical section, the balance of the book deals with gem materials, gem stones (precious, semi-precious, quartz gems, ornamental stones and marine gems.) Those who read 5,000 Years of Glass know that these authors can tell authentic facts in a fascinating way.
