International Jeweler's Day is celebrated on January 31

On January 31, the professional holiday – the International Jeweler's Day is celebrated all over the world.

Jewelry products of the Russian and European masters that created not only fine jewelry, but jewelry household items as well are presented in the museum Collection exposition. These products were made of various materials – precious metals, porcelain and carved bone, gems and ornamental stones, glass and ceramics. Their processing was diverse - they were ornated with carving, embossing and engraving, could be decorated with enamel and inlaid with precious stones. These were a variety of household items – travel toiletry cases, perfume and salt bottles, cigarette cases, mouthpieces, canes, seals and various desktop trinkets.

To mark the international Jeweler's Day, we have prepared a thematic photo album, which presents jewelry household items made by famous jewelry workshops and companies from the museum Collection exposition.
