Fashion jewelry is created with the catwalk and couture in mind, characterized by its creativity and originality. It is arguably the most exciting field in fashion today.

Arranged by designer, this is the first book to showcase contemporary catwalk and couture jewellery, profiling 33 international fashion jewelers who combine traditional techniques and ultra-modern methods to create this new style of jewelry. Among the stunning images of work shown are collaborations with leading fashion designers and brands such asLanvin, Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen, and Comme des Garons, as well as collections for directional fashion stores such as Colette and 10 Corso Como.

Showcasing skilled craftsmanship, unusual materials, and an often limited-edition approach, Fashion Jewelry harnesses the spirit of couture for the 21st century.
