Publisher's description: Historic New England's jewelry collection spans centuries of family tales, industrial development, and artistic expression. Some of these adornments bear designer names. Some are well used, with stories embedded in every nick and missing stone. Some represent up-to-the-minute trends and some embody deeply held spiritual beliefs. Through full-color photographs and engaging stories, Keepsakes and Treasures is a striking overview of what jewelry looked like for New Englanders from the mid-1700s to the present day. Each piece illuminates a new facet of New England life across the centuries.
