The exhibition curator, Museum Director Thomas C. Thulstrup of the Royal Danish Collection, says, ‘The Queen’s Golden Jubilee is a historic event that we at the Royal Danish Collection wish to celebrate with an exhibition that highlights a particular form of communication for the Queen that many may not be aware of. To the Queen, jewellery is not just a decorative element that has to match a given dress or outfit. As it is for all of us, the Queen’s jewellery represents memories, recollections, acts, friendships and continuity. When she wears a particular piece of jewellery it contains a reference to these memories. In other words, nothing is left to chance when the Queen chooses what jewellery to wear for a particular occasion. The jewellery speaks a language of its own. It is this language that we aim to explore with the exhibition “A QUEEN’S JEWELLERY BOX”. An exhibition the Royal Danish Collection is honoured to present, not least because all the jewellery in it is in regular use.’
