MFA Jewels Exhibition extends Display Date

The exhibition "Jewels, Gems and Treasures: Ancient to Modern" at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston is to extend its opening until 1 June 2014 (originally due to close 25 November 2012).

"Jewels, Gems, and Treasures: Ancient to Modern," the first exhibition in the Museum's new Rita J. and Stanley H. Kaplan Family Foundation Gallery, examines the various roles and meanings associated with a wide range of gem materials.  Drawn from the MFA's collection and select loans, these range from a 24th century Nubian conch shell amulet, to Mary Todd Lincoln's 19th century diamond and gold suite, to a 20th-century platinum, diamond, ruby, and sapphire Flag brooch honoring the sacrifices of the Doughboys in World War I."
