"A book covering many aspects of gems, from the sources of the precious stones to the care of the finished jewels. It gives backgrounds and histories of famous stones, and traces the development of various styles and articles of jewelry. There are chapters on setting and cutting gems, birthstones, the Crown Jewels of England and other royal gems, period jewelry, famous gems, choosing jewels, and caring for jewelry; and special chapters on the five precious gems and on the semi-precious stones.
