Jewelry and Fashion on Display at the Met

The Metropolital Museum of Art in New York is currently running an exhibit of woman's fashion and vintage jewelry. The exhibit will run through August 15, 2010.

Fashion and jewelry from the time period 1890 to 1940 will be featured and the exhibition reveals how the American woman initiated style revolutions that mirrored her social, political, and sexual emancipation. "Gibson Girls," "Bohemians," and "Screen Sirens," among others, helped lay the foundation for today's American woman.

Of particular interest to me is the fabulous vintage jewelry that is exhibited as adornment for the fashions that the exhibit is featuring.

For those of you who cannot attend, here is a YouTube video with highlights of the exhibit. Warning: The video contains sound.
