Book Rec Monday: jewelery history.

For jewelery history:

https://www.amazon.com/Jewelry-Antiquity-Present-World-Art/dp/0500202877/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1473701900&sr=8-1&keywords=clare+phillips ¬† This is the one I used in college and while the pictures aren’t fantastic, it’s inexpensive and a moderately easy read.

I’m eyeing¬†another book to add to my collection:

For a fascinating look on how history and the gem trade worked and even changed history, which is great material for all your steampunk storytelling:
