Do men wear jewellery? Should men wear jewellery? In this talk, V&A curator Rachel Church will look at the history of male jewellery and how ideas about appropriate jewellery have changed through time. From the glittering chains and jewels of the middle ages, to the diamond rings worn by 18th and 19th century men, to the rediscovery of jewellery by stylish contemporary men, this talk will look at how ideas of male adornment have intersected with class to create the changing image of the jewelled man.

Rachel Church has written and lectured widely on jewellery history and design. She is the author of ‘Rings’ (V&A/ Thames and Hudson 2011 and 2017) and ‘Brooches and Badges’ (V&A/ Thames and Hudson 2019). She has worked as a curator at the Victoria and Albert Museum and was part of the team which redeveloped the William and Judith Bollinger Jewellery Gallery.
