Format: Paperback
This is a great little handbook that's also fun to read. I would highly recommend for those who are just beginning to collect. Or maybe you just inherited some of Aunt Mildred or Uncle Bob's "junk" jewelry. You'll be surprised at what's valuable and what's not. I found that this book was a very interesting read as well as being a pretty good resource. Plus (and I think this is a big one) it's small enough to take with you when you're looking so you don't HAVE to memorize all those trademarks!!

I haven't had the opportunity yet to read the whole thing; but, I am really pleased with the detailed information and drawings that I have seen so far. I have recently been bitten by the costume jewelry collecting bug after receiving some of my great grandmothers' things. I know this will be a great value to me and my hunt!

I think I would like to sell Antique Jewelry when .... This book Teaches so much about how to know if the jewelry I find is cheap or worth a lot of money. That is important if I want to be successful in my business. Thank you Mrs. Bell for writing this book and giving away all of your secrets!
