Tony Duquette thrilled his famous clients and tantalized collectors with extravagant, one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces. Hutton Wilkinson, Duquette’s longtime business partner, friend, and protégé, followed right in Tony’s footsteps and also blazed his own path in spectacular style. Together, the two designers literally dazzled the world. Jewelry features a magnificent photographic collection of works by both artists, paired with delightfully descriptive prose by Wilkinson.


Duquette epitomized the tradition of “more is more,” a legacy look that Wilkinson has fully embraced and continued. Fittingly then, many of the pieces featured—including one-of-a-kind necklaces, brooches, bracelets, earrings, rings and more—are big, bold, and beautiful. As Glenda Bailey, editor-in-chief of Harper’s Bazaar, writes in the book’s introduction, “Hutton has such an amazing imagination that everything he touches blossoms, quite literally in the case of his jewelry; necklaces grow sapphire leaves, with rays of sunlight glinting through in the form of citrines set in gold rays, brooches spread diamond-studded branches; and coral curls delicately into diamond earrings.”


The lavish photographs by Stephanie Hanchett, many of which were taken in the gardens of Duquette’s fabled Beverly Hills estate, Dawnridge, highlight the mesmerizing appeal of the gems and stones. Readers of this gem of a book will enjoy exploring the artistry exhibited on these pages rich in color and detail.
