The Pforzheim Jewellery Museum is the world’s only museum in public ownership that is dedicated exclusively to jewellery. Its collections comprise originals from five millennia, from prehistoric times to the present day. Highlights include exquisite specimens from Greek and Etruscan antiquity and from the Renaissance and the Baroque periods, as well as outstanding examples of Art Nouveau jewellery plus its unique collection of contemporary art jewellery created since 1960. Two other collections, on permanent loan and displayed since 2006, provide important complementary insights into the diversity of jewellery: the Eva and Peter Herion collection of ethnographic jewellery and the Philipp Weber pocket watch collection owned by the Sparkasse Pforzheim Calw savings bank.
