Though it can be a last-second addition to any outfit or a simple necessity like a wristwatch, jewelry tells a story. The Met has gathered up more than 230 objects from its own collection for this exhibition that will "traverse time and space" to discover how jewelry transforms us and helps us to express ourselves. Headdresses, earrings, brooches, belts, necklaces and rings from 2600 BC up through today will be on display alongside sculptures, paintings, prints and photographs.
