The Smithsonian/Cooper-Hewitt Design Museum released a book with all the VCA jewelry featured in the exhibit they organized.
The book like the exhibit shows the extensive range and workmanship quality of the Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry and object of vertu.
It is an incredible reference book of VCA pieces from the begining of the 20th century to today with some history of the French joaillier and the famous clients who wore their pieces.
A treat for the eye and unbeatable price for such a rich book.
Over 280 pages of marvels at a modest list price of $ 55.00
(Cheaper on Amazon.com and/or other book sites)

ISBN 978-0-910503-85-3
Set in Style

You are welcome Danielle.
I can't recommend this Van Cleef & Arpels book enough.

Why not Lyric? Your review did not reflect that.
