The museum started in the seventies buying and collecting Dutch Jewellery which in meantime became one of the main Jewellery Collections of The Netherlands.
During this jewellery exhibition you take a look at the revolutionary developments of the Dutch designed jewellery starting at the sixties of last century.

For more information about this museum and exhibition, please take a look at www.mmkarnhem.nl (English written). In case you would like to read more about Dutch jewellery I recommend to you “Het Nederlandse Sieraad in de 20e Eeuw”, translated “The Dutch Jewel in the 2oth Century”, by Marjan Unger, ISBN: 90-6868-3489. I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s unfortunately only available in Dutch.
