Historic New England's jewellery collection spans centuries of family tales, industrial development, and artistic expression. Some of these adornments bear designer names and museum-worthy pedigrees. Some are well used, with stories embedded in every nick and missing stone. Some represent up-to-the-minute trends. Some embody deeply held spiritual beliefs.

Through full-color photographs and engaging stories, Keepsakes and Treasures is a gorgeous overview of what jewelry looked like for New Englanders from the mid-1700s to the present. Each piece illuminates a new facet of New England life across the centuries.
