November 18th sees the launch of the much anticipated second volume of JAR Paris, which brings the collection up to date. Following on from the success of Volume 1, which celebrated 25 years of creations by Joel A. Rosenthal with an exhibition at Somerset House in London, Volume ll is being made available to coincide with another exhibition - this time at The Met in New York. Pieces of JAR jewelry explore the recreations of natural forms such as flowers and insects in the most spectacular way using unique combinations of stones and metals. JAR has never set out to court publicity or been associated with the fashion world. It has always been left to the jewels themselves - and now JAR pieces are some of the most sought after ever made.
To quote Deborah Duchess of Devonshire "...the more we saw, the more we wanted to see. Pieces so extraordinary, so beautiful, so imaginative and original there are no words to describe their impact".
316 full page colour photographs with descriptions. Large hardback book with cloth covers in dustjacket and presentation slipcase.
