BYZANTIUM AND THE WEST: JEWELRY IN THE FIRST MILLENIUM

November 2, 2012 Leave a comment
This is the Fall show for LES ENLUMINURES in Manhattan in NYC
 
23 Est 73rd Street, 7th floor
Outside my area of expertise, but these are some forty pieces of jewelry made of precious metals like gold,  and stones like emeralds, crystals and  garnets  that the Romans ostentatiously wore despite imperial decrees against it. The Byzantine leaders indulged in this even more so that we can enjoy these rings, bracelets, brooches, earrings and pendants from the third to the tenth centuries  today.
Cheers,
Elisabeth
