Starting in the era of Cleopatra and continuing through to contemporary jewelry statements by Lady Gaga, Stellene Volandes tells the stories of how shiny stones and precious metals have determined empires, inspired expeditions and great crime, and been the communicator of status and ruin since ancient times.
