The National Gallery Company (NGC) has launched its first jewellery collection, in partnership with PureJewels and inspired by its new Artemisia exhibition.

The exhibition is about Artemisia Gentileschi, a female Italian Baroque artist who defied gender norms of the 17th century.

The Artemisia collection, designed, manufactured, and distributed by London jeweller PureJewels, features a wide assortment of precious pieces designed to be “antiques of the future” according to a NGC statement.


“We are delighted to be working with PureJewels, our first fine jewellery licensee, the craftsmanship and attention to detail are second to none and we are very excited about this collaboration,” said Judith Mather, buying and brand licensing director at the National Gallery Company.

The range includes dark rhodium-plated silver, contrasted with 22ct yellow-gold vermeil, pearls and garnets.

The materials are crafted into a bracelet, lariat, ring, T-bar necklace, pendant, hoop earrings and drop earrings.

“A lot of research went into the collection to ensure that every element of the detailed pieces embodies the boundless energy depicted in the art of Artemisia,” said PureJewels CEO, Jayant Raniga.
