PearlsFrom humble beginnings, starting with a grain of sand, Pearls become beautiful jewels, treasured for their beauty and you can see some of the best examples in the world at the Victoria & Albert Museum's autumn 2013 exhibition. A pair of drop pearl earrings owned by Elizabeth Taylor, a 16th-century salamander pendant, and a group of tiaras worn by European royalty are among the highlights. But as well as displaying robes dripping in pearls worn by Far Eastern rulers, this exhibition will explore the history of pearls beginning with the early Roman Empire - when an entire military campaign could be financed by selling just one pearl earring.

 

About Victoria and Albert (V & A) Museum

Today it houses over 4 million items spanning centuries and hundreds of cultures. The stunning collection covers European, Indian, Chinese, Korean, Japanese and Islamic artefacts ranging from ceramics, glass, metalwork and sculpture to costume, armour, weaponry and furniture.
