 Adorning the body has ever since been a way of expressing status and was subject to etiquette, the focus of this exhibition nevertheless is the importance of the city of artistic fabrication and shift in perception of jewellery. Works from throughout the centuries are presented, outlining the changes in social and commercial life as well as the influence of intercultural exchange.
