Birthday Book of Diamonds


I depend on this beautifully photographed softbound book…..during the Victorian age no household would be without one. These calendar books have only month and day, NOT any year, so I use mine to jot down birthdays, anniversaries, important days, deaths, births, etc. Can easily be passed down through the generations. Lushly photographed by the world famous team of Harold and Erica VanPelt – photography does not get any better. A really great idea is to carry a copy with you to shows and have people you meet sign in on their birth date. My copies have some really famous signatures. The VanPelts have retired from photography but their work lives on. – Dona


For centuries, diamonds have been the object of envy and intrigue, the subject of legends and lore. they have also become associated with important events in a person’s life. Birthdays, weddings, anniversaries- diamonds have come to signify love, commitment, and caring. Like the original birthday books of the 19th century, this book indicates the dates for each month but not the specific day of the week. This makes it perfect for noting birthdays, anniversaries, and other special occasions that repeat from year to year. For each month, the first photograph shows gems of the birthstone for that month. all other photographs are of diamonds-in their natural crystal form, as loose faceted stones, or set in fine jewels.
