Jewelry from Pearls to Platinum to Plastic
Ulysses Grant Dietz
The Newark Museum has been one of the most active collectors of jewelry among American museums in the last decade. Inspired by his 1997 exhibition on Newark’s once-vast fine jewelry industry, Ulysses Dietz turned to non-Newark jewelry and has been acquiring significant pieces, old and new, for the Museum’s Lore Ross Jewelry Gallery since 2006. Diamonds, pearls, platinum and plastic – it’s all part of the museum’s collection which spans five centuries.
