Reviews

"[Chadour-Sampson] explores the jewelry that expresses the universal sentiment of love, from the ancient world to current times and illustrates through text and photos how passion, desire and enduring love remain constant but the jewelry that evokes these feelings has evolved over time. . . . These are just a few highlights from the affection and passion that unfolds throughout this enchanting book, proving that love, when translated into jewelry, knows no bounds."-- "Forbes"
"Taking the reader from the ancient world to just last year, the internationally renowned author tells the many and varied stories of jewellery's association with love throughout Western Europe."-- "The Jeweller"
"Chadour-Sampson pleases jewellery lovers once again with her new book . . . . Beautifully illustrated in a curated collection of historic jewellery designs. . . .
