Welcome to Jewellery History Today.

Jewellery History Today is the magazine of The Society of Jewellery Historians. It is published three times a year, in winter, spring and autumn, and is sent free to all members. It contains details of the Society’s lecture programme, news, exhibition and fairs listings, book reviews, and brief articles about all aspects of jewellery, ancient and modern. Click here for contents of current and previous issues, or to download a full pdf (members only). If you would like to see a copy, click here, and send us your contact details, and we will send you a sample pdf.

The Society also publishes a learned journal, Jewellery Studies. Jewellery Studies is available free to all members, electronically since 2015 and as a downloadable pdf for previous issues.

We welcome news items and feature articles (up to 1,200 words) about jewellery from anyone interested in the subject. You do not have to be a member of the Society to contribute. Contact us here, or write to:
