Intro
Opening at DIVA, the museum for diamonds, jewellery and silver, on October 30th is the exhibition The Jeweller’s Art. Revolutionary jewellery from the 1960s and 70s. The swinging London of the 1960s engendered an explosion of innovation in the jewellery industry, which spread to the rest of Europe and the USA. Besides jewellery, the exhibition showcases fashion, music and design from that vibrant period. The timing of the exhibition could hardly be more opportune given that the 1960s and 70s are right on-trend at the moment.
