Adorn: Jewellery, The Human Story

Adorn: Jewellery the Human Story covers almost 4000 years of changing fashions in jewellery. From gold earrings worn by wealthy Roman women to the devotional rings of medieval Christians, the desire to express ourselves through the objects we wear has remained the same. 

Nowadays personal adornment is not just limited to jewellery, the rise in popularity of tattoos and piercings has provided another way for people to adorn themselves. We decided to ask local people to share the stories behind their jewellery and tattoos.
