Since its first acquisition in 1851, the Victoria and Albert Museum's Jewellery collection has grown to become one of the greatest collections in the world with more than 4,000 objects on exhibition.The Victoria and Albert Museum Diary 2009 is a celebration of jewels, gems and glamour and, like the Jewellery gallery, focuses on the last 1000 years of Western jewellery, but also includes pieces from Ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome. The pieces are often shown in context with contemporary photographs, advertisements and works of art, as well as jewellery designs and sketches, creating a fascinating insight into the process from inception to finished piece. The diary contains national and religious holidays and astronomical information and is published to coincide with the opening of the newly-refurbished Jewellery Gallery in May 2008.
