Hedendaagsesieraden.nl is an encyclopedic website about contemporary jewellery launched October 2016 when Galerie Ra in Amsterdam celebrated its 40th birthday. The mission of this website is to offer information about the world of (contemporary) jewellery in a comprehensive and encyclopedic way.

Every week 3 or 4 new entries about artists, museums, galleries, exhibitions, academies, collectors et cetera are being published. At the moment almost 1000 articles on different subjects are online. About 2500 articles are in preparation.

The Agenda offers an overview of selected current and future exhibitions, fairs, lectures, seminars and other events.

The mission of this website is to offer information about the world of (contemporary) jewellery in a comprehensive and encyclopedic way.

There are plans to build a freely available database aside from the website and possibly an image database as well. These developments take time and need money. Please consider your support.

Feel free to send in your questions, suggestions, additions or corrections through the contactform or write a comment and start a discussion. If you have publications or documentation that could be of interest to the website: please let me know.

The google translate button at the bottom of each page can translate the entire website in English, Chinese, Arabic or whatever language you prefer. The search option can be found there as well. I hope you’ll enjoy your visit to the website.
