V&A – Jewelry on Exhibit

Two Nerdy History Girls is a blog that I really enjoy reading.

Below is an excerpt from one of their posts that I recently read and I particularly like due to the fact that the V&A is one the best museums in all of London.

Loretta, from Two Nerdy History Girls reported  about a jewelry reward the Prince Regent gave to two Cotes sisters that he’d entrusted with keeping his daughter, the Princess Charlotte, from running amok. The Prince Regent was very generous in his gift of gorgeous peridot suite of jewelry, only the earrings are shown below.

The video below, spotlights this peridot suite as well as revealing the letter’s contents. In a few cryptic words, the writer conjures quite a scene—at least in this writer’s mind. I also enjoyed seeing the collection suspended in a dark room with highlighted areas creating the illusion of floating jewelry. Surely an exhibit worth seeing.
