In Masterpieces of American Jewelry, leading jewelry expert Judith Price showcases the finest wearable art that has adorned Americans for the past 150 years—treasures.by Charles Louis Tiffany, the Cartier brothers, and others—and relates the fascinating stories behind them. 

Price made her mark in the world of fine art through her involvement with the Museum of Modern Art in New York, on the boards of several art-related foundations, and as founder of the National Jewelry. Through these efforts and others, Price has established herself as the foremost authority on fine American jewelry. It is with this expertise that she has selected pieces that represent not only exquisite craftsmanship and artistic skill, but also encapsulate a moment in time in America.
