Whether Kochert in Vienna, Faberg. in Saint Petersburg or Lalique in Paris, the great jewellers of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries were all inspired by heavenly forms. Today, interest in celestial bodies remains unbroken among contemporary internationally celebrated jewellery artists. The richly illustrated book presents for the first time a comprehensive review on the star motif in jewellery – from Ancient Egypt to the present day.
