Clinton: Jewels of the Romanovs lecture at Museum of Russian Icons

March 27, 2014

| $7

Clinton – The Museum of Russian Icons, 203 Union St., Clinton, will be presenting a lecture on the Jewels of the Romanovs by Nicholas Nicholson Thursday, March 27, from 6 – 7 p.m.

Jewels and jeweled objects played a major part both in Russian Imperial ceremonials, and in the private lives of the Romanov family. Nicholson examines the art of jewelry and jewelry collecting in Russia from Peter the Great's formation of the “Diamond Chamber” and the organization of the Crown Jewels, to the creations of the vast private collections of the Imperial family, including works by Russian jewelers such as Faberge & Bolin, but also including works by western jewelers such as Boucheron, Chaumet, and Cartier. A final survey covers the fate of the jewels after the revolution, and a look at where some of the jewels have ended up; in the collection of HM Queen Elizabeth II, and (temporarily) as the crown of Miss Universe.

Tickets are $7 for members and $10 for nonmembers. Advance ticket purchase is recommended by calling 978-598-5000. Visit http://museumofrussianicons.org for more information.
