WEDNESDAY, October 6th: DISCOVERING the CHEAPSIDE HOARD
For almost 300 years a buried treasure lay undisturbed below one of London’s busiest streets. The Cheapside Hoard is the greatest cache of Elizabethan and Jacobean jewelry in the world, and one of the most remarkable and spectacular finds ever recovered from British soil. Including beautiful examples of Colombian emeralds, Burmese rubies and Brazilian topaz, it highlights the amazing international gem trade as well as the brilliant skills of the goldsmiths of the 17th century. Where so much jewelry of the time has been lost or destroyed by the intervening centuries, this is an unparalleled time-capsule telling us about the taste in jewelry design and the jewelers’ trade then. Join Hazel Forsyth, senior curator at the Museum of London, and author of “London’s Lost Jewels: The Cheapside Hoard”, as she guides us through this astonishing collection. RSVP is open via link in the title.
