Synopsis

Jewelry & Gems The Buying Guide How to Buy Diamonds, Pearls, Precious and Other Popular Gems with Confidence and Knowledge by Antoinette Matlins, Antonio C. Bonanno

to this edition In working with my own clients to acquire gemstones and jewelry since this book was first published in 1984, they have pointed out that most people buy jewelry and not gemstones. Because the book offers so much practical advice and money-saving tips about buying jewelry, they urged me to change the title. So, in this edition The Complete Guide to Buying Gems has been changed to Jewelry & Gems: The Buying Guide. Consumer and professional response to the book has been very gratifying. Almost 14,000 hardcover copies are in circulation. We have received hundreds of letters, phone calls and in-person comments about the helpfulness and interesting information it provides. We thank you for encouraging us to make the book more widely available by bringing out this softcover edition. We have taken the opportunity of this softcover edition to update the price guides for diamonds and colored gemstones and, in light of the increase in both the popularity and price of pearls, to add a price guide for them in the Guide to Popular Gems and Their Prices. Also, we want to take this opportunity to comment further on gem invest- ment, taking into account major developments since the original manuscript was written in 1980.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.
