Find the most beautiful traces of the past in jewellery’s varied periods
Jewellery has always held a particular fascination for us. Jewellery and fashion adorn people anew, again and again, mirroring developments in society – with changes in the language of form, fresh motifs or new approaches. In certain periods artists concentrated on shapes or colours, later they came to place greater emphasis on materials or certain techniques. Here you can learn how jewellery has developed over time since the mid-18th century. Perhaps you will even recognise the origin of one of your pieces.
