The William & Judith Bollinger Gallery

July 26, 2012 § Leave a comment

Iv’e gone to see this exhibition quite a few times, simply because it leaves me speechless every time with over 3,000 jewels in room 91 at the V&A Museum.

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 itself explores the depth of jewellery and how is has not only influenced fashion but become the centre of it too. Reading the history behind every jewel or selection of jewels from a particular era is simply mind-blowing. The way in which it has also changed over time is fascinating. If you haven’t gone to see this gallery yet, it is a must!
