The history of jewelry collection from the Museum of Jewelry organizes our product line by historical era, culture, geography or theme. Earrings and jewelry found in victorian times, renaissance replicas, and copies of old world jewelry designs in museums throughout the world are cataloged here by historical significance.
The Museums "Modern" Jewelry Collections cover the 18th century through the today and categorizes products by era. In general the collections reflect European and American fashion trends as the world opened for trade and the industrial revolution raged.
While many ancient cultures and civilizations wore jewelry, only some of these designs transcend time. Our collection of middle ages jewelry covers the the post Roman Byzantine Empire through the Renaissance and everything inbetween.
