The museum only allows photos without the use of a flash, plus all the jewelry is in cases, so I had to try to photograph through glass. The bright lights, helpful for illuminating the collection, were not so helpful for my photos, hence some of them aren't so great. But, there is a book published by Assouline in conjunction with the exhibit also called Fashion Jewelry: The Collection of Barbara Berger. The book is a beautiful coffee table book with wonderful photos.
I highly recommend both the exhibit and the book. A modified version of the exhibit is still on display until some time in January 2014. Check the Musuem's site for more details. www.madmuseum.org. Below is a peak at some of the pieces. I have included the designer and year of production on as many as I could.
