Jewelry is the cherry on top of an outfit — it breathes life into anything it touches. Author of Fashion Jewellery: Catwalk and Couture ($55) Maia Adams understands that, which is why she created this book that profiles contemporary catwalk and couture jewelry. She showcases 33 jewelry designers who combine traditional techniques and modern methods to create the world's most unique bling. Among the designers featured are Lanvin, Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood, and Comme des Garçons. If you eat and sleep jewels, look to this book for further ideas.
