The second part of this major volume showcases scores more of the world’s most significant and famous pieces of emerald jewelry, including many previously unseen designs from private and royal collections. Historic creations are represented alongside modern jewelry houses, including Cartier, Boucheron, Bulgari, Harry Winston and more.
