Richmond upon Thames


MONTHLY MEETINGS are being held on ZOOM for the meantime, and will be at the normal time of 2.30pm on the last Wednesday of each month, although it is a good idea to log on from around 2.15pm

We now have a ZOOM licence that allows 500 people to join our meetings so there is no need to make a reservation. The invitation link will be emailed to all of our members a few days before the talk.

Historic Jewels by Dr Vanessa Jenkins

To name a few – the Peregrina Pearl, owned by Mary Tudor, Napolean III and Liz Taylor, brooches worn to support the abolition of the slave trade, exquisite eggs and jewels designed by Faberge …

Vanessa has had a varied career as a doctor, which included being a medical adviser to the government and working on cruise ships. 10 years ago she started giving talks - on cruise ships, and for a wide range of organisations including the National Trust, the Civil Service, and various history societies.
