[Exhibition] Bedazzled: 5,000 Years of Jewelry

“Bedazzled: 5,000 Years of Jewelry”

“The Walters Art Museum is one of few museums in the world that can
provide an array of exquisite jewelry from over 5,000 years of world
history and from a vast spectrum of cultures. This exhibition of
more than 200 highlights from the Walters’ collection-- many of them
never displayed before – presents the evolution of techniques and
materials throughout the ages, and demonstrates the importance of
jewelry as an expression of creativity, and often wealth and
position. A special focus will be placed on finger rings throughout
history, with important examples on loan from the distinguished
collection of the New York gemologist Benjamin Zucker.”
