From the president of the National Jewelry Institute comes the largest collection of ancient jeweled objects ever assembled.

Worn for much more than just personal adornment, jewelry has played an important role in culture and civilization since the earliest times. Travel back through more than 6,000 years of history as you explore artifacts originating from Mesopotamia, Persia, Levant, the Byzantine Empire and the Islamic Middle East, from 4000 B.C.E. through 700 C.E.

Culled from the Louvre, the Berlin Museum, the Islamic collection at the Metropolitan Musuem of Art, the Princeton Museum, and the Israel Museum, these treasures include jeweled armor, weapons, jewelry, household objects and more.

Complete with photographs on every page, Masterpieces of Ancient Jewelry details the collection's rich history through informative captions and interviews with major scholars and curators from around the world.
