About this book

Mother Nature is the Best Designer has served as the unofficial motto for Tiffany & Co. since Charles Lewis Tiffany founded his company in 1837. And Mother Nature has never been in better form than in this charming two-volume, slipcased set, which presents Tiffany's stunningly bejeweled plant and animal kingdom.

John Loring traces the influences of cultural and aesthetic movements on jewelry design and history from Edward C. Moore's Japanesque silver, Paulding Farnham's High Victorian masterpieces, and John T. Curran and Louis Comfort Tiffany's Art Nouveau creations, to Jean Schlumberger's mid-20th-century haute-couture jewelry and the contemporary triumphs of Elsa Peretti and Paloma Picasso. Orchid clips, apple pendants, parrot brooches, and more sparkle throughout in beautiful new photographs.
