Dr. Yvonne Hackenbroch's seminal and comprehensive work, Renaissance Jewelry, originally published in 1979, established her reputation as the world's foremost expert in the field.

REVIEW: Yvonne Hackenbroch (1912-2012) was born in Frankfurt, Germany; she studied art history at the University of Munich, earning a doctorate in 1936. During and after the war she worked partly at the British Museum, and was part of the team that catalogued the Sutton Hoo treasure. In 1949 the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York invited her to become a curator specializing in Renaissance art. Her book “Renaissance Jewelry”, published in 1979, is considered the seminal work on the subject, extending her worldwide reputation as the leading expert in this field.

REVIEW: “Look at light and admire its beauty. Close your eyes, and then look again: What you saw is no longer there; and what you will see later is not yet.” These words from Leonardo da Vinci are the ideal introduction for this marvelous book on Renaissance jewelry whose splendor illuminates every turn of the page. The Renaissance was a special moment in time when the pretext of a return to antiquity created a movement for a new era, the advent of a shimmering, multifaceted future that spread a sense of rebirth and flamboyant youthfulness around Europe. From 1450 to the early 17th century, people who had seemed to be separated by so many borders became conscious that they all lived on the same continent, be they kings, merchants, artists, navigators, priests, or men of war. In those times of budding global trade and exchange, the medium of printing helped establish the modern world of culture and communication. All human endeavors were being transformed—even opposites seemed to be shifting toward harmony. The discovery of the New World and the birth of capitalism, the dawn of patronage and Copernicus’ revelations, the Reformation and the Concordat, the French kings’ conquest of Italy, artistic drive and a literary movement. Drive and enthusiasm, creation, exchanges, and discoveries abounded. The Renaissance reached cruising speed with an unparalleled dynamism—artistic, technical, scientific, intellectual, and religious. Nothing could stop the vision or the momentum. Everything was on the move; in warfare, politics, science, and religion, man was finally at the center of knowledge and the world. The time had come. Out with the old world and in with the new. Jewels reigned in the Renaissance; one might say it was a European art that imposed itself on an international scale. This book is an invitation to turn the pages as though dancing a Renaissance pavane: It holds the secret thrill of time recaptured through history. The Renaissance teaches us to admire both the intelligence of grace and the grace of intelligence, when men wore gems, and jewels weighed lightly on women’s shoulders. READER REVIEWS: REVIEW: The quality of the photographs is excellent of the jewelry. I’ve read a reviewer complain that the photos of the paintings are grainy, but I think this stems from a lack of understanding in that Assouline purposely did this in order to create some cohesiveness with the paintings throughout the book. The book is based on Renaissance jewelry and the history of it. It's not intended to be a book about art. REVIEW: As an antique jewelry lover, I feel that the authors' photographs of jewelry pieces by themselves are outstanding. I am very thrilled with the knowledge and beauty displayed in this volume. REVIEW: Stunning. Informative AND beautifully composed. The photos are exceptional. REVIEW: A “ten” on a scale of zero to ten! Absolutely magnificent! I always ship books Media Mail in a padded mailer. This book is shipped FOR FREE via USPS INSURED media mail (“book rate”). All domestic shipments and most international shipments will include free USPS Delivery Confirmation (you might be able to update the status of your shipment on-line at the USPS Web Site) and free insurance coverage. A small percentage of international shipments may require an additional fee for tracking and/or delivery confirmation. If you are concerned about a little wear and tear to the book in transit, I would suggest a boxed shipment - it is an extra $1.00. Whether via padded mailer or box, we will give discounts for multiple purchases. International orders are welcome, but shipping costs are substantially higher. Most international orders cost an additional $12.99 to $33.99 for an insuredshipment in a heavily padded mailer, and typically includes some form of rudimentary tracking and/or delivery confirmation (though for some countries, this is only available at additional cost). However this book is quite heavy and it is too large to fit into a flat rate mailer. Therefore the shipping costs are somewhat higher than what is otherwise ordinary. There is a discount program which can cut postage costs by 50% to 75% if you’re buying about half-a-dozen books or more (5 kilos+). Rates and available services vary a bit from country to country. You can email or message me for a shipping cost quote, but I assure you they are as reasonable as USPS rates allow, and if it turns out the rate is too high for your pocketbook, we will cancel the sale at your request. ADDITIONAL PURCHASES do receive a VERY LARGE discount, typically about $5 per book (for each additional book after the first) so as to reward you for the economies of combined shipping/insurance costs. Your purchase will ordinarily be shipped within 48 hours of payment. We package as well as anyone in the business, with lots of protective padding and containers. All of our shipments are sent via insured mail so as to comply with PayPal requirements. We do NOT recommend uninsured shipments, and expressly disclaim any responsibility for the loss of an uninsured shipment. Unfortunately the contents of parcels are easily “lost” or misdelivered by postal employees – even in the USA. That’s why all of our domestic shipments (and most international) shipments include a USPS delivery confirmation tag; or are trackable or traceable, and all shipments (international and domestic) are insured. We do offer U.S. Postal Service Priority Mail, Registered Mail, and Express Mail for both international and domestic shipments, as well United Parcel Service (UPS) and Federal Express (Fed-Ex). Please ask for a rate quotation. We will accept whatever payment method you are most comfortable with. If upon receipt of the item you are disappointed for any reason whatever, I offer a no questions asked return policy. Send it back, I will give you a complete refund of the purchase price (less our original shipping costs). Most of the items I offer come from the collection of a family friend who was active in the field of Archaeology for over forty years. However many of the items also come from purchases I make in Eastern Europe, India, and from the Levant (Eastern Mediterranean/Near East) from various institutions and dealers. Though I have always had an interest in archaeology, my own academic background was in sociology and cultural anthropology. After my retirement however, I found myself drawn to archaeology as well. Aside from my own personal collection, I have made extensive and frequent additions of my own via purchases on Ebay (of course), as well as many purchases from both dealers and institutions throughout the world - but especially in the Near East and in Eastern Europe. I spend over half of my year out of the United States, and have spent much of my life either in India or Eastern Europe. In fact much of what we generate on Yahoo, Amazon and Ebay goes to support The Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, as well as some other worthy institutions in Europe connected with Anthropology and Archaeology. I acquire some small but interesting collections overseas from time-to-time, and have as well some duplicate items within my own collection which I occasionally decide to part with. Though I have a collection of ancient coins numbering in the tens of thousands, my primary interest is in ancient jewelry. My wife also is an active participant in the "business" of antique and ancient jewelry, and is from Russia. I would be happy to provide you with a certificate/guarantee of authenticity for any item you purchase from me. There is a $2 fee for mailing under separate cover. Whenever I am overseas I have made arrangements for purchases to be shipped out via domestic mail. If I am in the field, you may have to wait for a week or two for a COA to arrive via international air mail. But you can be sure your purchase will arrive properly packaged and promptly - even if I am absent. And when I am in a remote field location with merely a notebook computer, at times I am not able to access my email for a day or two, so be patient, I will always respond to every email.
