Armada jewel

Postby Muzuru В» 26.02.2020

.

From The Moonstone and The Eustace Diamonds to the opening pages of Middlemarch, jewels adorn some of the most famous scenes in English literature. After Dickens describes the darkened room lit by candles, the yellowed wedding dress, the long bridal veil and flowers, and the ravaged wedding cake covered in cobwebs, he tells us that around the old woman's neck and on her fingers she is wearing the jewels that we later learn she put on for the day of her marriage.

He wants us to know that Miss Havisham's sparkling diamonds are the only uncorrupted things in her living tomb. They alone will outlast the grave, impervious to the ravages of time - and that, in part, is why we are so fascinated by them. For once, the videos and interactive computers are well worth looking at, and throughout non-reflective glass is used, so that you feel there is nothing between you and the precious objects a few inches away.

The gift of William and Judith Bollinger, the gallery is a curatorial and architectural tour de force. The place to start is the case containing the Townshend collection of coloured gemstones. There is something intrinsically mysterious about minerals that date back to the beginning of time, but it is the depth and purity of the colours of Siberian aquamarines, Colombian emeralds and Burmese rubies that we find so mesmerising.

These are the raw materials from which great pieces of jewellery are made. Before thinking about the design or historical importance of a piece of jewellery, we respond viscerally and sensuously to the beauty of the stones used.

As both these examples show, provenance is also part of our fascination with jewellery. I am not sure I'd have looked twice at a case filled with oversized rings and a necklace made with pale aquamarines - until the label explained that they'd belonged to Edith Sitwell, who wears them in Cecil Beaton's famous photos of her.

Among the wonderful pieces owned by William Morris's daughter May is a heart-shaped brooch of green and pink paste. It has no intrinsic value, but its historical importance is immeasurable since it was a gift from Dante Gabriel Rossetti to May's mother, Jane, and also appears in one of his best-known paintings.

Sometimes the history of a collection is sinister, as in the cabochon rubies from the Seringapatam jewels, which came to this country as officially sanctioned loot removed in from the legendary treasury of Tipu Sultan in Mysore. Did Wilkie Collins have these spectacular gems in mind when he wrote The Moonstone? When a piece is signed or otherwise documented, the question of authenticity doesn't rise.

But with early jewellery particularly from the Renaissance period the best guarantee of authenticity is a cast-iron provenance. In , for example, a horde of Elizabethan dress jewellery was discovered in a house under demolition in Cheapside in the City of London.

With the certain knowledge that a necklace from the Cheapside Horde is authentic, scholars were able to examine other purportedly Elizabethan pieces to determine their authenticity. Another guarantee of authenticity is the appearance of a jewel in a portrait, as happens with the Heneage or Armada jewel, which features a profile of Queen Elizabeth I and was given to Sir Thomas Heneage after the defeat of the Spanish Armada.

Sometimes a jewel is documented as being in a certain place at a certain moment in history, as is the case of an outsized spray of flowers in enamelled gold and diamonds offered in the late 18th century to the Shrine of the Virgin of the Pillar in Saragossa in Spain.

The curators tackle the problem of fakes head on. It is especially difficult in 19th-century jewellery because, as Castellani's success demonstrates, the Victorians were a lot less squeamish about revivalist jewellery, copies and reproductions than we are today.

Then, too, old jewels were frequently given new settings, as happened in the case of a cameo with a head of Hercules made around and attached to a pendant in England in Sometimes the line between what is a fake and what is revivalist is hard to draw - but not in the case of the Canning jewel, once thought to have been made by Benvenuto Cellini but now seen to be a 19th-century forgery.

The display takes us up to the present day, and here I have to admit that jewellery becomes much less interesting to me when design takes precedence over the beauty of the materials and the designers start to lose sight of how women actually wear jewellery. But that's just me. There is so much to see and learn and that is the good thing about a permanent gallery such as this one. You can return again and again to appreciate it all in bite-sized pieces.
