This lavishly illustrated book will feature stunning examples of the jewels as well as the stars, socialites and heiresses who wore them. At the height of Flatos career, he was more famous than Tiffany & Co. or Harry Winston. Branching into motion pictures at the pinnacle of Hollywoods Golden Era, Flato designed jewelry for a total of six films, including Holiday (1938) with Katherine Hepburn and the disastrous flop, Two Faced Woman (1941), the last film Greta Garbo ever made.

But, in 1943 at the peak of his celebrity, Flato found himself facing financial ruin and heading up the river to Sing Sing Prison as his career and reputation plummeted. Now, more than a half-century later, Flatos distinctive jewelry, still fresh and chic, has reemerged to a new audience and jewelry connoisseurs alike.

This book is a long overdue and long awaited tribute to one of Americas greatest jewelers.
