This exhibition catalogue of fifteen items, which also includes a complete bibliography, extensive footnotes and a useful glossary, is a beautiful and scholarly contribution to the study of ancient jewelry, a Vorbild for its kind, as essential tool for specialists and a sumptuous delight for general readers.” —Revue des archéologues et historiens d'art de Louvain
