Carol’s latest book takes a unique look at how jewellery and fashion have been closely linked over the last century.
Carol Woolton is a leading authority who has written widely on antique and contemporary jewellery. She has worked as a critic and judge for The Arts Foundation, Jerwood Foundation, Goldsmiths Hall, Hong Kong International Jewellery Show and annually for The Royal College of Art.
In Fashion for Jewels, Carol Woolton shows how the worlds of fashion and jewellery have become increasingly integrated over the last century. Profiles of icons from Gabrielle Chanel and Harry Winston to Princess Diana and Lady Gaga reveal the interplay of personality and history in the world of fashion.
Jewellery is more than the sum of its parts. Metal and stones have to be magically combined with the right proportions, colour, workmanship and design. Likewise this diary will be a mixture of ingredients such as design, tangible beauty, fashion, comment, the new, behind the scenes snapshots and personalities.
