The famous gallery at the V&A is probably the best place in the world for fabulous jewellery. We will see beautiful pieces such as the ‘Armada Jewel’ possibly a gift from Elizabeth I, Cartier’s ‘Tutti-Frutti’ bandeau bought by Lady Mountbatten and learn about some illustrious owners like the Marchioness of Londonderry seen/depicted in a painting outside the gallery literally bedecked in gem stones, some of which are on display.
Maybe followed by an expresso in the V&A Members’ Room designed by Carmody Groarke and with a view of Amanda Levete Architects Exhibition Road entrance, entirely covered in porcelain tiles.
