This October, Glam Rocks: British Jewellery from the 1970s will explore how jewellery evolved throughout the 1970s, looking at how the fashion and lifestyle of the 70s affected the jewellery design of the period. Glam Rocks continues our exploration of jewellery in the later half of the 1900s following on from our 2019 exhibit - Stardust: The Art of British Jewellery in the 1960s.
The 1961, International Exhibition of Modern Jewellery curated by Graham Hughes, organised jointly by the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths and the Victoria & Albert Museum, was the world's first international display of modern jewellery. The exhibition covered the period from 1890 to 1961. Stardust picked up from where Hughes's exhibition left off, exhibiting pieces by artist jewellers such as John Donald, Tom Scott and Alan Gard. Glam Rocks takes a closer look at the exciting designs of the 1970s featuring pieces from Andrew Grima, Gillian Packard and many others.
Collectors in the current market are clamoring for pieces by British jewellers making in the 1960s and 1970s. Glam Rocks will be an exceptional opportunity to view jewellery assembled from that period, all made in Britain, and all from one private collection.
