Elizabeth I’s Locket Ring on Display Now!

Posted By claire on June 22, 2012

Thank you so much to Tamise for alerting me to the fact that Elizabeth I’s famous locket ring is on display right now. The ring isn’t generally on display as it is kept at Chequers, the official country residence of the Prime Minister, so this is your chance to see it. It is part of the ‘Gold: Power and Allure’ exhibition of the Goldsmiths’ Company.

More details can be found on Tamise’s blog post – click here – and on the exhibition page of the Goldsmiths’ Company website – http://www.thegoldsmiths.co.uk/events/gold-power-and-allure/

The exhibition is on now and is running until 28th July.

On this day in history…
