Founded in 2004 by a wife of a diplomat whose collection embodies 30 years of globe-trotting, it is the first museum in Asia devoted entirely to jewellery. The museum is situated in the heart of the North Village, where history and culture pulse with the daily rhythms of contemporary life. You can also browse around the museum shop where a diverse collection of antique and contemporary jewellery from various countries awaits you. The World Jewellery Museum has an active program of temporary exhibitions throughout the year with themes ranging from ancient ornaments to contemporary jewellery. The mission of World Jewellery Museum is to preserve, collect, and exhibit works of jewellery and in doing so to foster the understanding of history, society, art and spirit of various nations and people. The museum realizes this mission through exceptional exhibitions, educational programs, research initiatives, publications and strives to engage and educate an increasingly diverse international audience.
