Roman Empire's 'Ancient Luxury' shows timeless appeal at G

Recommended Posts

...awesome items on display, worth a visit for sure...


A sumptuous cache of pearl- and emerald-encrusted rings, bracelets, gold necklaces and other opulent objects from the Roman Empire are on display in the exhibition "Ancient Luxury and the Roman Silver Treasure from Berthouville" at the Getty Villa in Pacific Palisades. On view for the first time outside of Paris, the assortment of precious jewelry accompanies the 90-piece gilt-silver Berthouville Treasure of statuettes and ornamental vessels that were found by a French farmer plowing a field in 1830. Both are on loan from the royal collection of the Cabinet des Médailles at the Bibliothèque nationale de France.
