Stellene Volandes’ new coffee table tome chronicling the world’s most notable contemporary jewelry designers is a delightful journey through the history of gorgeous gems
Stellene Volandes, editor-in-chief of Town & Country, has written a gorgeously illustrated tome entitled “Jeweler: Masters, Mavericks, And Visionaries Of Modern Design”, published by Rizzoli.
Inside you will find an array of 17 of the most brilliant contemporary jewelers who combine precious and semi-precious gemstones and new materials in creative and innovative ways. Some of these contemporary designers will be unfamiliar to the uninitiated, but once you have seen their work, you will be struck by their originality, their genius and their process. These are designers whose pieces will no doubt become collectors items in the years ahead, just as we now covet and admire the work of their predecessors including Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, Bulgari, David Webb and Verdura.
Through interviews and insightful commentary, the book provides a peek into the creative impulses that drive these talented jewelry artists. It is available for sale at Rizzoli.
