Rated 5 out of 5 by Amyelaine EXCELLENT READ!
I have always been interested and intrigued by Ms. Taylor, and her jewels. This book doesn't disappoint. Shows many photos with stories. It is written in lavender ink, but I found it easy to read. A great coffee table/conversation piece.
Rated 5 out of 5 by VFkaren Buy it if you can get it!
BEST BOOK EVER! If you love jewelry, buy this book. If you are infatuated by Elizabeth Taylor, buy this book. If you are drawn in by storytelling, buy this book. Elizabeth shares her collection with us in a deeply personal way - by showing the pieces and sharing the story behind each one (the way you probably look at your own jewelry pieces). This had been OUT OF PRINT for years, and the only way to see it was through your local library. Used copies have been offered online for hundreds of dollars. THANK YOU, QVC, for reprinting this incredible treasure.
Rated 5 out of 5 by maderagirl Fabulous Coffee Table Book
I like to stack style books on my coffee table, and so when I saw Jane present this, I had to order! It is a fascinating book with beautiful photographs. I have enjoyed reading through it. And, it does look fabulous stacked on my table!
Rated 5 out of 5 by DancingMermaid It's the perfect coffee table book!
Being a Liz Taylor fan and a lover of beautiful "bling," I'm having my own love affair with this book! If you're a fan of either...Liz or jewelry, it makes for the perfect coffee table accessory.
Rated 5 out of 5 by cathairetic A beautiful memoire
Elizabeth Taylor describes her jewelry and how she came to own it. This is a large book, printed on heavy glossy paper. It weighs a lot! It's not a prop on your lap book. Sit on your sofa and place it on the coffee table or sit at a table. You will be fascinated. The photos are amazing and there are additional stories of her work in films. If you collect books on jewelry, this book is a must for your collection.
Rated 2 out of 5 by LilyRosemary Nice content but I'm returning it.
Received this book a few days ago and have been reading it. One small thing: I hate that the text is in a lavender color--I get that was her favorite color, but it makes it difficult to read.
The major troublesome thing is that the book "cracks" when pages are turned. I don't know if it's because the binding glue is bad or what. But it's an expensive book and it should hold up better. One page is loose already.
Elizabeth wouldn't be pleased. Sorry, but that's why it's on its' way back to you.
