Jewelry speaks to nearly everyone. Necklaces, bracelets, rings, pins and earrings, whether of feathers, stones, ivory, precious metals, alloys or gemstones, are worn with pride. Personal ornamentation can be used to assert power, rank or wealth. It can convey taste, style or tradition. Each piece reveals its creator’s culture and imagination.
To assure future generations of your legacy, we recommend you follow the advice in our Caring for Jewelry Collections issue of the AXA ART Collection Management Series.
