Event description
Rings, necklaces and pendants have been a symbol of beauty and power for millennia.

About this event

Rings, necklaces and pendants have been a symbol of beauty and power for millennia, with intaglios of carnelian, jasper and garnet adorning powerful men and women alike. More and more, precious and semi-precious stones, intaglios and ancient coins, set in both contemporary and classical styles, are becoming sought-after by modern collectors as statement pieces of jewellery for any collection.

Join leading jewellery historian Dr Jack Ogden with gallerist Beth Morrow of Kallos Gallery and Fair exhibitor Jean Scott-Moncrieff as they discuss the trend of updating ancient jewellery for the modern collector, the challenges of preserving ancient techniques and precious stones, and the timeless beauty of ancient Greek, Roman and Egyptian jewellery.
