The Cheapside Hoard in the Museum of London. The jewels were found in 1912 when workmen dug in Cheapside in London, and it is believed they belonged to the stock of either a tradesman or a pawnbroker. They are not the diamonds and precious pearls of the aristocracy, but reflect the tastes and prices of the upper middle classes, showing a lot of enamel as well as semi precious stones. The cut of the jewels points to the 17th century, but many items still have a very late 16th century feel about them. It is being mainly dated to the early 17th century though. Below you will find close-ups of the jewellery.
