Marjorie Merriweather Post bought Hillwood Estate in 1955 and soon decided her home would be a museum that would inspire, educate and entertain the public. In an exhibition opening 10 June, over 50 pieces that once belonged Ms Post, one of the greatest jewellery collectors of the 20th century, will tell the story behind some of the remarkable stones and the jewellery into which they were transformed.
