The Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp's urge to adorn, in which jewels and objects are the most important means of identification and expression, is both universal and timeless. Jewels and wearable objects tell a story about the status and style, mentality, character and culture of the person using them. At the same time, they are a witness to social, cultural and technological developments. That's why jewellery design is such an exciting and versatile profession that, although based on a rich tradition of craftsmanship, is constantly changing.
