Examining our love of jewellery

Have you ever wondered why we are so interested in wearing jewellery? Or considered what jewellery will look like in the future? In his new video, Professor Jack Cunningham, Head of the School of Jewellery, tries to answer these very questions.

In 'Beyond Jewellery' he explains how we’ve been decorating ourselves for millennia because jewellery says something about the wearer. He examines the impact technology has had on mass production and ponders whether what we call 'precious' now, will be precious in the future?
