Old Gold

Brooch, 1924, Cartier

 

Even if shiny baubles are a bit too pricey for your Valentine’s Day budget, you can still gaze upon dozens of exquisite objects at the Museum of Fine Art’s new Past Is Present: Revival Jewelry exhibit beginning February 14. Consisting of ancient and Renaissance jewelry as well as 19th through 21st century designs that were inspired by the bygone treasures unearthed in archeological expeditions, this show features dazzling wearables dating back thousands of years up through today, including an ancient winged scarab that is displayed alongside a 1924 Cartier brooch no doubt fashioned after such priceless pieces of the past. Such names as Tiffany, Wedgwood, Bulgari and those of avant garde contemporary crafters like Shinji Nakaba and Akelo stand alongside priceless Etruscan, Egyptian and Classical Greek artifacts, assuring that you and your sweetheart can at least bask in the glow of luxury in this most romantic of seasons.
