European traditional jewellery - the jewellery worn with national costume - was highly popular in 19th century Britain. An invaluable reference for today's jewellers and collectors, this book illustrates a wide selection of beautiful pieces from across the Continent drawn from the rich collections in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Spectacular examples include gilded Norwegian wedding crowns, elaborate gold crosses from Normandy, ornate earrings from Spain and Italy and delicate filigree clasps from the Balkans.
