World Digital Library

February 5, 2010 | No Comments

In between all the old documents at “World Digital Library” there are so many real beauties, also for our world of jewellery!

This online project by The American National Library of Congress, with the aid of amongst others UNESCO and libraries from more over than thirty countries, this Internet-website includes manuscripts, maps, rare books, photos, architectural drawings, films etc.etc. This is all made to contribute to conceptions in between different cultures. You will enjoy it, it’s so…Beautiful!
Make your own journey criss-cross through the world, cultures, history and you will see details you would never have expected to see today.

It’s so divers as you can see from the pictures above; 18th Century Map of the region of Minais Gerais (since ages the famous gemstone region of Brazil), A Member of the Royal Mu  Family, “The book of the Royal Gemstones” and the Emir of Bukhara. I’m convinced that in the next coming years this Internet website will become more and more interesting…and it’s already so special. It will enable you to see, discover and learn so much about jewellery, gemstones & many other things of other cultures. You will get so much pleasure out of this unique web-site, that’s for sure!
