Intro
Jewelry in Europe and in the USA: On both sides of the ocean are Western cultures. If jewelry is considered a form of communication, do people speak the same language on either side of the Atlantic?

Observations from the last century, e.g. by curator and writer Ralph Turner or jewelry maker Gary Griffin, suggest that the styles on both sides of the Atlantic differed a lot. The American style was perceived as opulent and ornamented while the European seemed to be more reductivist.

Our exhibition aims to shed a light on two questions: Have these differences been blurred in our era of globalization or do they still exist? To what extent does one only perceive a difference because knowledge of an artist’s name and location results in cultural stereotyping?

Opening hours:
Monday to Saturday, 10 am - 6 pm.
