BRITAIN-CHEAPSIDE HOARD

LONDON — Diamonds may be forever, but jewelry often doesn’t survive through the centuries. Rings and bracelets get broken up for re-use, pearls decay, gold gets melted down. That explains the excitement over a new London exhibition of the Cheapside Hoard — a trove of almost 500 gemstones and pieces of jewelry from the 17th century, dug up by workmen demolishing a building in London 100 years ago. The trove, which was buried under the brick-lined cellar floor of jewelers’ workshops, offers a glimpse into 17th-century fashion, London life and the jewelry trade. It is also an unsolved historical mystery. Why was the priceless collection buried? And why did its owner never return to dig it up? By Jill Lawless. UPCOMING: 650 words by 1000GMT.
