In 1912, laborers on a building site in Cheapside in the City of London unearthed a great trove of gemstones and jewels which had lain undisturbed for some 300 years.

Known and celebrated as the Cheapside Hoard it is still the largest known cache of its kind in the world. These objects, dazzlingly beautiful, intricate and often astonishing, are evocative emissaries from London's past.

The Cheapside Hoard remains the single most important source of our knowledge of the Elizabethan and early Stuart jewellers' trade and, by extension, life and fashion in London society of the era.

‘I did never see any such daily shew any so sumptuous in any place in the world, as in London’ Fynes Moryson, 1617

Cost: £5
