Jewelry

The Palace Museum collection of jewelry consists of articles personally owned and worn by Qing empresses and concubines. These pieces were originally crafted by the Qing imperial workshops (Zaoban chu) and preserved by the Imperial Household Department’s Storage Office (Guangchu si). The elegant articles were all finely crafted with precious metals and countless gems. Furthermore, various designs and styles represent a strictly defined ranking system among the palace women.
