On Wednesday, October 30th 2019, Dr Page Knox led a private tour of the Jewelry for America exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art for AFV&A supporters. The group viewed pieces from The Met jewelry collection from the early eighteenth century to the present day and some accompanying paintings showing important jewelry pieces worn by the sitters. Dr Page Knox talked about the changes in styles, materials and techniques visible in the jewelry as the group walked through the five chronological sections of the exhibition.
