Authors: Hubert Bari;David Lam. Category: Design and Applied arts. Pearls are white, or so we think. Since the success of Tahitian pearls, we know they can be black too, but few people are aware that they come in all colours. Who knows that they are formed by all molluscs, including the celebrated nautilus? And who knows how a pearl is formed?

I have only great feedback for the seller, but not so good for the book itself. I'd give the seller 5 stars, and the book 1 star. The book is well written, and very cool IF you are interested in history, pearl history to be exact. Not that pearl history is bad or boring, it's just that this book is not really about pearls, it's about who had them, wanted them, lost them, what they did with them, a veritable who's who of the wearers and owners of the pearls over time. There is a teeny speck of information about actual pearls, not much at all. Which is why I give this book such a low rating, it should not have been called "Pearls", it should or could have been called something like "A Historical culture of pearls", with the intended pun! It should have had more actual information about the thing itself, the PEARL!
Interesting read, this book tells you about the myths that we have "known" about pearls and gives you a great history on pearls. Shows great photos of pearl jewelry that through ages have made a mark on the quality of great pearls. It is a " MUST HAVE" for anyone interested in pearl jewelry.
This book is written by a non-native speaker of English. Her English is excellent, and completely grammatical, but I believe the difference between cultures shows in the rather lush descriptions given. Nevertheless, her information is completely reliable, the photographs are superb, and her book is probably the most complete one on pearls that I've ever seen. Most pearl books deal only with the nacreous variety, and the better ones also discuss the more common non-nacreous types, such as melo and conch pearls. However, this book covers every pearl-producing shellfish there is, even if the number of pearls known to have been produced by them can be counted on one hand. The theory presented concerning the natural production of pearls seems to be very sound to me, though I am no pearl expert. It is also well-illustrated and clearly explained.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone. The only drawback for me is that I find the extravagant language a bit irritating, but that, as I have said, can be put down to cultural differences.
Big coffee table book with excellent photographs to drool over. The text gives information on non-nacreous pearls, and very good information on how pearls actually form, which I've found nowhere else (and I have a lot of pearl books).
If you have any interest in pearls, this is a must read - for jewelers, hobbyists or just those curious. Beautiful pictures and content is wonderful .
Ok book
Pearls is one of the loveliest jewelry books I own. Loads of background information on pearls and on the history of pearls. I woul d recommend this to anyone who loves pearls or is interested in jewelry history. Beautiful book....
Loads of photos and a most enjoyable book for a pearl lover like me. Very reasonable cost, too, for such fabulous photos.
