The sought-after brochure for the landmark exhibition of JAR jewellery held at the Gilbert Collection in London. The jeweller Joel Rosenthal founded JAR in 1977. Since then he has created exquisite and unique items of jewellery for the world's most discerning collectors. His discreet shop in Paris produces only a few pieces each year and each one is worked to perfection, using JAR's original mix of stones, colour and fantastical subject-matter. This guide to the exhibition contains 5 insightful essays and 22 large colour photographs, providing an excellent source of reference for JAR's rarely-seen jewellery.
