Open this book to find 3,200 glittering jewelry items distributed by Avon Products, Inc. from 1965 to 2006. It is an almost complete record of the company’s production. Read the authority’s guide to identifying each design by its official name and date of release, based on the original company brochures, along with current market values. Then go to your jewelry box and see your collection in a different light; now you, too, can become an authority. Learn how the Avon company evolved since 1886. The jewelry line began in 1965 and grew, through original designs and direct marketing home parties, into a giant with about 250 new designs each year. Avon packaging is also an important part of the jewelry’s success, and here you will see all the variations that are so desirable among collectors today. Some of the original box styles may even inspire designers today to “think outside the box.” This comprehensive new book will become the standard reference for Avon jewelry because it is handsome, complete, and wholly accurate. What more could a jewelry lover want?
