Detail: Throughout human history, the human body has served as a primary canvas onto which each individual and every society strives to distinguish beauty, wealth, social status and personal tastes. Despite sharing the same basic physical space, there is an astounding variety in what different societies emphasize for personal adornment. The value placed on the types of materials used as well as the manner in which those materials decorate the body reveal a splendor of diversity around the world.

Explore the wonders of jewelry as a window into better understanding extensive trading networks, disparate geographies and diverse cultural viewpoints of numerous nations of Asia both past and present.
