We are launching our book reader late June and will be quickly rolling out our original library with more books in July and August.
Please do not delete links: the library will be back in an improved form: we will show the original scan + searchable text in the background so you can search in all books, but read the original. We appreciate your patience with us.
Now, you can have a glance at our Gemstone Books Collection page, which is being populated with new books every day.
For tutorials, antique resources, Sotheby’s and Christie’s auction results and information on art deco and art nouveau jewelry follow this link; Go here for “ Idar Oberstein: Europe’s century old Gemstone center”. Find more information on the use of antique cameos in Victorian times written by acclaimed cameo guide book author Diana Jarrett.
Go to our museums page and see some of the most beautiful collections worldwide.
