"Fashion, status & identity
In all cultures, people have decorated their bodies. Jewellery follows fashion and trends, but also tells a story about the people who wore it. Today as before, jewellery is an indicator of financial status and social contexts. Rare, precious materials have often been made into jewellery, but over time pearls and precious stones and metals have been joined by new materials."
— Helena Lindroth, curator of the Jewellery exhibition at the Nordiska museet
