Schreiner is a luxurious book offering a first concise history of one of North America's foremost designers of high-end costume jewelry, a genre of jewelry popularized by Coco Chanel and today one of the most collectible. Created in New York City by founder Henry Schreiner in 1932, the eponymous company flourished during the early 1940s. During the 1950s under the leadership of Henry's daughter, the company's unusual color combinations, hand-made settings, and use of custom-made stones set them apart from their contemporaries, leaving behind a legacy for jewelry experts and admirers to study, covet, and collect to this day. For thousands of collectors of Schreiner worldwide, Schreiner provides valuable insight into their collections from the family itself. With hundreds of breathtaking photographs, the breadth of the Schreiner oeuvre is explicated, from the somber years of the Great Depression through the rise of the American ready-to-wear industry. Through the optimistic yet conforming 1950s, the youthful antiestablishment of the 1960s, and the feminist movement of the 1970s, the designs and materials of these pieces reflect the moods and mores of the decades in which they were made. And for the very serious Schreiner collector, the book explores common characteristics employed in the construction of Schreiner designs aiding collectors in the task of identifying unsigned Schreiner jewelry. This volume examines not only the cultural context and significance of Schreiner jewelry but also offers object-based analyses and archival documentation of various Schreiner pieces.

Dazzling and celebrity-filled, this anecdote-packed account of Raymond C. Yard and his remarkable jewelry is a classic rags-to-riches tale. Yard began his career in the jewelry business as a door boy at Marcus & Co. in 1898, just as the newly affluent American industrial families were beginning to patronize jewelers like Tiffany & Co., Cartier, and Marcus & Co. Rising from door boy to salesman and finally general manager, Yard gained the admiration of John D. Rockefeller, Jr., who encouraged him to open his own company in 1922. Rockefeller recommended the Yard firm to his family and friends, and soon Yard was creating jewels for New York's elite families, including the Woolworths, Flaglers, DuPonts, and Havemeyers. Author Natasha Kuzmanovic takes the reader through the development and classic period of the Yard firm, and all the way up to the present day, showcasing more than three hundred pieces of jewelry, specially photographed for this book, including bracelets dripping with diamonds, Kashmir sapphires, and Burmese rubies; fabulous moonstone necklaces; seemingly endless strands of natural gem pearls; and for the lighthearted, whimsical figurative brooches featuring rabbits, lions, and fish. This wonderful book will appeal to anyone with a love of jewelry, fashion, and glamour.
