FROM DOWNTON TO GATSBY
JEWELLERY and FASHION
ANDREW PRINCE Tuesday 12 November 2019

Andrew Prince has had a passion for Jewellery since his childhood. At 16 he started to work for Ian Harris of the Antique Road Show and then moved to the contemporary jeweller Elizabeth Gage. He eventually was commissioned by the V&A to design jewels for the Exhibition 'Tiaras, Past and Present'. This was followed by commissions for 'Mrs Henderson Presents' and for the 'Young Victoria'. In 2012 he designed the jewellery for the third series of 'Downton Abbey'.

In his lecture Andrew will guide us through the extraordinary periods and events between 1890 and 1929 when the great fashion houses collaborated with the finest of jewellers to produce works of art of outstanding quality and glittering opulence.
