Coveted: Art and Innovation in High Jewelry
Melanie Grant
Phaidon Press, 2020

When does jewelry transcend the category of fashion accessory to become art? Coveted provides a survey of the most innovative creations in jewelry design, profiling 75 of the most prominent designers working today. Through exceptional pieces from each artist's  oeuvre, the book explores their conceptual approach, provenance of materials, quality of design, composition, and workmanship, revealing what makes these creations not only coveted objects of exceptional value but also works of art. Coveted is separated into 5 thematic chapters covering key approaches for contemporary high jewelry, including Modernism; the cultural exchange between East and West and its effect on design; the evolution and meaning of innovative materials; the natural world as inspiration and the growing empowerment of women, both as designers and consumers.
