Lecture Jewels of Scandal and Desire: British Jewelry Collections and County Houses

Great Jewels have dazzled people for millennia, their beauty and value producing respect, deception, love and betrayal. This lecture explores how the eighteenth and nineteenth-century British ruling classes used jewelry to reinforce their positions in society and awe their peers. Curt DiCamillo, a former director of the National Trust for Scotland Foundation, USA, and a recognized authority on the British Country House, will discuss the tales behind these noble families, their houses, and their jewels, weaving a glittering web of power and position.
