Jewelry, from Pearls to Platinum to Plastic

Whether it is made of natural miracles or marvels of human invention and skill, jewelry has adorned the human body since prehistoric times. The Newark Museum has been collecting jewelry since 1911, and has one of the most comprehensive holdings in the country.
