Hidden Meaning – Messages Revealed Through Royal Jewels

Throughout history jewels have represented hidden meanings. This talk will consider why certain jewels have been worn by members of the Royal family since the reign of Queen Victoria through to Queen Elizabeth II and her extended family. Whatever the Royal Event or Ceremony, the meaning of the jewellery worn will be revealed in this talk. If there is a particular Royal Jewel that you would like to know about please let us know and we will endeavour to include it in the presentation.

“Fabulous Flaws” – The World of Inclusions

The beauty of gemstones has been appreciated for thousands of years, but quite often we reject gemstones due to their flaws (inclusions). This presentation will reveal how important inclusions are in identifying the origin of certain gemstones and how accomplished designers have very cleverly incorporated these inclusions into jewellery designs. This talk will include a practical session and as a result numbers are limited, so do book early.

Lectures are individually priced at £38and include tea or coffee on arrival
and a complimentary glass of fizz after the Talk.

The Gallery doors will open between 11am and 11.15am and the Talk will commence at 11.30am
