<b><b>“A dynamic group biography studded with design history and high-society dash. . . . [This] elegantly wrought narrative bears the Cartier hallmark.”—<i>The Economist</i></b><br /><br />The captivating story of the family behind the Cartier empire and the three brothers who turned their grandfather’s humble Parisian jewelry store into a global luxury icon—as told by a great-granddaughter with exclusive access to long-lost family archives<br /><i><br /></i><b>“Ms. Cartier Brickell has done her grandfather proud.”—<i>The Wall Street Journal</i></b><i><br /></i></b><br /> <i>The Cartiers</i> is the revealing tale of a jewelry dynasty—four generations, from revolutionary France to the 1970s. At its heart are the three Cartier brothers whose motto was “Never copy, only create” and who made their family firm internationally famous in the early days of the twentieth century, thanks to their unique and complementary talents: Louis, the visionary designer who created the first men’s wristwatch to help an aviator friend tell the time without taking his hands off the controls of his flying machine; Pierre, the master dealmaker who bought the New York headquarters on Fifth Avenue for a double-stranded natural pearl necklace; and Jacques, the globe-trotting gemstone expert whose travels to India gave Cartier access to the world’s best rubies, emeralds, and sapphires, inspiring the celebrated Tutti Frutti jewelry.<br /><br /> Francesca Cartier Brickell, whose great-grandfather was the youngest of the brothers, has traveled the world researching her family’s history, tracking down those connected with her ancestors and discovering long-lost pieces of the puzzle along the way. Now she reveals never-before-told dramas, romances, intrigues, betrayals, and more. <br /><br /><i>The Cartiers</i> also offers a behind-the-scenes look at the firm’s most iconic jewelry—the notoriously cursed Hope Diamond, the Romanov emeralds, the classic panther pieces—and the long line of stars from the worlds of fashion, film, and royalty who wore them, from Indian maharajas and Russian grand duchesses to Wallis Simpson, Coco Chanel, and Elizabeth Taylor. <br /><br />Published in the two-hundredth anniversary year of the birth of the dynasty’s founder, Louis-François Cartier, this book is a magnificent, definitive, epic social history shown through the deeply personal lens of one legendary family.

Khordipour and Shaddaie have been selling vintage rings and jewelry for decades, and throughout all that time they kept seeing the same problem pop up: most guys who are looking to buy an engagement ring enter the store with almost no prior knowledge. They are completely at the mercy of the jeweler. <br /><br />Most men don’t even know what the word “carat” actually means. Important words like filigree, fluorescence, bezel-set, milgrain, or polished girdle are like a completely different language to them. <br /><br />Last year, however, Khordipour and Shaddaie decided that they were going to fix this problem. They set out to write a book that would provide all the answers that someone would need to know before buying their engagement ring.<br /><br />Here is what you can expect to learn from this book:<br />- A Complete Education on Diamonds<br />- Tips to Saving Money on Your Ring<br />- An Overall Jewelry Education<br />- How to Propose Successfully?<br />- Engagement Ring Customs and Traditions<br />- How to Figure Out Her Style<br />- Discover if you're Ready to Get Married?

<b>On a snowy Christmas Eve, a beautiful young mother goes out to buy a few last minute gifts...and never returns.<br />Thirty years later, her daughter picks up her trail.</b> <br />What really happened to Audrey Nealon’s mother? Did she die in a tragic accident? Or did she abandon her husband and young daughter? And why is Audrey’s father so cold and distant?<br /> <br />As the successful owner of an estate sale business, Audrey has put the past behind her. Her mother is a distant memory, her father a problem she keeps closed away.<br /> <br />Until the day Audrey clears out the home of a lonely old widow and finds some shocks.<br /> <br />Street drugs in the silverware drawer, a trunkful of jewels in the attic, and the distinctive ring Audrey’s mother was wearing the night her car supposedly sank to the bottom of a New Jersey lake.<br /> <br />Relentlessly, Audrey pursues clues to her family’s troubled history. Because the truth will set her free…unless it gets her killed.<br /> <br />Each fact Audrey uncovers drags her further away from the love she craves. Now she’s on a collision course with people more determined, more ambitious, and more dangerous than she can fathom. As the twist ending reveals, some truths are too awful to bear, and too terrible to share.<br /> <br />Fans of Liane Moriarty and Melinda Leigh will enjoy this romantic thriller with its fun mix of mystery, romance, and humor and a strong female detective. And if you're a dog lover who enjoys Spencer Quinn's Chet and Bernie mystery series, you'll want to meet Ethel, the canine sidekick who steals every scene she's in.

This handy book tells you how to “cherrypick”—that is, how to examine coins that look normal at first glance, but have unusual characteristics: doubled and tripled dies, overdates, repunched mintmarks, and other features that can reveal a common coin to be a rare and valuable variety. With the close-up photographs and descriptions inside, you’ll learn exactly what to look for. That kind of knowledge truly is power!

Søren Kierkegaard was a Danish philosopher, theologian, poet, social critic and religious author who is widely considered to be the first existentialist philosopher. He wrote critical texts on organized religion, Christendom, morality, ethics, psychology, and the philosophy of religion, displaying a fondness for metaphor, irony and parables. Much of his philosophical work deals with the issues of how one lives as a "single individual", giving priority to concrete human reality over abstract thinking and highlighting the importance of personal choice and commitment.<br /><br />The Soren Kierkegaard Collection features:<br /><br />Fear and Trembling<br />Philosophical Fragments<br />Purity of Heart Is to Will One Thing<br />and<br />The Sickness Unto Death
