Treasures of the Titans Jewelry Exhibit

It's already started, but if you are in the Chicago area any time up until around early June, you can still take a look at some gorgeous fine jewelry and accessories at the Treasure of the Titans exhibit running now through June 3, 2007 at the Grainger Gallery — Second Floor of The Field Museum. General admission for the museum is $12 for adults, $7 for children 4-11, seniors and students with ID.

Not bad considering you'll see gems and baubles from Tiffany and Co., Van Cleef & Arpels, Cartier, Fabergé, and Bulgari. The "titans" title refers to who owned the jewelry at one time:

Each piece reveals the character and style of the person associated with it. A stunning Bulgari diamond necklace and earrings set, for example, reflects the glamour of Italian actress Sophia Loren, who was the first person to win an Oscar for starring in a foreign film. Sir Elton John, known both for his musical hits and his outrageous sense of style, is represented by a three-inch-diameter brooch showing a globe made of gold, rubies and diamonds created to commemorate his 1989-90 world tour. Madeleine Albright, the first woman to serve as U.S. Secretary of State, wore an antique eagle brooch studded with rubies, diamonds and pearls during her 1997 swearing in ceremony. A striking diamond tiara, along with other accessories, illustrate the classic elegance of Princess Grace of Monaco, who first rose to fame as actress Grace Kelly in the 1950s.
