"A Celebration of Victorian Jewellery : Love, Leisure and Ceremony" Exhibition
This event has ended.
Victorian jewelry from 19th century England, as well as the opulent lifestyles they adorned, occupied an important place in the history of European ornament. Even today, these styles continue to hold an elegant appeal for many. This exhibition features exquisite pieces of jewelry manufactured using the most refined techniques, drawing from famous collections and even the treasury of the British royal family. In addition, a selection of over 300 related pieces, including vintage dress and costumes, magnificent silver tableware and antique lace will also be on view.
