Jewelry: The Body Transformed

What is jewelry? Why do we wear it? What meanings does it carry? Traversing time and space, this exhibition explores how jewelry acts upon and activates the body it adorns.

Watch a video preview, featuring Melanie Holcomb, Curator, Medieval Art, of the exhibition Jewelry: The Body Transformed, on view at The Met Fifth Avenue from November 12, 2018, through February 22, 2019.
