The exhibition, which runs from 11 October 2013 - 27 April 2014, will display the Cheapside Hoard, a priceless collection of Elizabethan and Jacobean jewellery found buried in London in 1912. it is believed to be the hidden stock of a jeweller operating in Cheapside just before the Great Fire of London. Sponsored by Fabergé, Gemfields and Coutts, it will be the first time the collection of 500 gems, loose stones and ancient objects will be shown together for over a century.
