More than 100 jewelry items thousands of years old were on display at the exhibition “Vietnam’s ancient jewelry” in Hue recently.

The exhibits are selected from the old jewelry collections of the Center for Preservation of Hue Relics and the National History Museum. The exhibition introduced a fairly comprehensive overview of the art of jewelry from prehistory to the Nguyen Dynasty (19th century).

From bracelets, gloves, and bronze belts of the Dong Son culture (2,000 to 2,500 years ago) to earrings, stone, agate, and glass beads of Sa Huynh culture were introduced at the exhibition. This is a glove with bronze bells of the Dong Son culture.
