Room 92: Jewellery
The William and Judith Bollinger Gallery
Over three thousand jewels tell the story of jewellery in Europe from Ancient Greece to the present. From a great gold Celtic breastplate to medieval love rings and pendants given by Elizabeth I to her courtiers. From enamelled watches to diamond tiaras and jewellery in paper, acrylic and titanium. From jewels by Cartier to animals by Fabergé and jewellery by an international selection of contemporary makers. The gallery explores how jewels have been not only at the centre of fashion, but of the deepest human emotions.
Room 92 is on Level 3 of the V&A South Kensington.
