About the book
The magnificent one-of-a-kind necklaces, brooches, bracelets, and rings Tony Duquette created for friends and clients such as the Duchess of Windsor, Liza Minnelli, Elsie de Wolfe, and Duquette’s wife, Beegle, instantly became highly desirable collector’s items and are found in museums and private collections around the world. Today, Duquette’s protégé and business partner, Hutton Wilkinson, continues that remarkable legacy with his own Duquette-inspired one-of-a-kind pieces, sold through specialty stores and jewelers. Tony Duquette/Hutton Wilkinson Jewelry presents the most spectacular, jaw-dropping pieces by both artists, whose belief that “more is more” is reflected in pieces set in 18-karat gold and dripping with precious and semiprecious stones that recall the splendors of the great courts of Renaissance kings, Chinese emperors, and maharajas. This precious luxury edition, with its gold foil stamping and gilt-edge pages, itself resembles an exquisite jewelry box, tempting all to peek inside and discover untold treasures.

Praise for Tony Duquette/Hutton Wilkinson Jewelry:

“A lavishly illustrated jewel box of a tome.” Los Angeles Times
