Overview

Discover the thrilling history and mysteries behind the world’s finest collection of Elizabethan and Early Stuart jewellery.

Don't miss your chance to see the Cheapside Hoard as it is displayed in full for the first time since it was discovered buried under a cellar floor in the City of London in 1912.

The dazzling collection includes nearly 500 pieces of jewellery, from rings and necklaces to jewelled scent bottles and a unique Colombian emerald watch.

Why was the hoard buried and why whom? Explore the rich history of the Cheapside Hoard and discover how new research has unlocked the mystery of when the collection was buried – between 1640 and 1666 – thanks to a previously overlooked gemstone and a recent excavation at the site of discovery.

You'll also get a flavour of London's role in the vibrant international gem trade of the time, and what life was like in Tudor and Early Stuart London, through displays of rarely seen portraits, multimedia installations and objects from the Museum of London's vast collection.
