Brief Description of Book: Memoirs of a Fashion Jewelry Manufacturer
up to the title. It is indeed a memoir of a lifetime in the jewelry
business. Frank DeLizza shares interesting background stories and
about the rise and rise of a family business from the late 1940’s to
1990’s. His memoir is written in a chatty or conversational style and
sounds as if you are talking to the author! (According to Cheryl
There are lots of photographs and illustrations. Many of the photos are
family albums putting faces to the names in this book. There are also
of jewelry in black and white and color. There are magazine spreads and
there are concept sketches of the jewelry pieces.
Quantity of Illustrations: For a memoir, this is highly illustrated!
Quality of Illustrations: 7
B/w and color illustrations: The color illustrations are very good
but there is only a few pages of color. Most of the illustrations are
and white they get the “idea” of the pieces across. However, DeLizza
Elster jewelry is so super-color saturated it is a pity that there is
more color included in the book.
Color Photos: 7

unionization of Mr. Delizza’s business.
