Jewellery Matters Raffle

Special Offer to Receive a Copy of Jewellery Matters
Become a Member of AJF–Donate to Win!

Jewelry Matters

During the month of February, become a member of AJF and be entered into a raffle to receive one of five copies of Jewellery Matters.

Art historian, jewelry collector, and design expert Marjan Unger and Rikjsmuseum curator Suzanne van Leeuwen mobilize beautiful objects, photographed to scale throughout the book, to tell the fascinating story of jewelry from the Byzantine era to the present day. Jewelry is a unique art form―rare almost by definition and yet utterly universal―and Jewellery Matters engages its unique materiality, interweaving perspectives from art history, fashion theory, and anthropology with material research. What emerges is a gripping tale of a shared cultural heritage, an art form that is produced and worn around the world.

Beautifully designed and produced, Jewellery Matters sets an iconic standard for jewelry publications. A feast for the eyes and an important reference work, this volume is indispensable for lovers of jewelry, fashion, and design.


Art Jewelry Forum is a nonprofit that celebrates the unique ways jewelry participates in our lives–from the historic to the contemporary, we support thinking about jewelry. Become a member to celebrate the many facets of jewelry with us.

This offer is made possible through the generosity of the book’s authors, Marjan Unger and Suzanne van Leeuwen. Read an interview about Marjan and Suzanne and Jewellery Matters on AJF.
