About

This exquisite exhibition of jewellery will mesmerise visitors to Lady Lever Art Gallery this autumn as part of the gallery’s centenary year celebrations.  

Pure Brilliance: The Boodles Story will showcase the jewellery brand’s 200 year story and show how Liverpool has helped shape the company’s growth, from a family jewellery business to purveyors of some of the most stunning jewels in the world. 

See how the heritage of Liverpool’s vibrant and creative jewellery industry in the late 19th century created a market for good quality jewellery and metalwork, for which Boodles soon acquired a reputation. Stunning pieces of historic jewellery from Liverpool makers and racing trophies made by Boodles will illustrate the early years of the firm, previously known as Boodle & Dunthorne. The company’s rise from city jeweller to the pinnacle of high-end jewellery design and manufacture can be seen through the breath-taking contemporary jewellery on display, each piece a unique work of art.

Explore the awe-inspiring craftmanship behind the pieces, from the sourcing of precious stones and metals through to the design and the manufacture of the pieces. See how the famous Boodles brand was created and venture into the glamourous world of luxury jewellery. It’s an opportunity to get close to some of the most imaginative and lavish jewellery in the world, created by a family firm which still has its flagship store in Liverpool today.

The skill, creativity and craftsmanship of the jewellery on display is of the highest quality, resonating with the craftsmanship shown in the collections of the Lady Lever Art Gallery, which celebrates its 100 year anniversary in December 2022.
