The Museum of Art and Design will launch a bauble-filled exhibit next week centered around the collection of Barbara Berger. Over 450 pieces of costume jewelry will be on display, including a Miriam Haskell gilded metal and pearl grape cluster necklace, circa 1950, which is being donated to the museum. Pieces from the '30s through the '70s will be present from houses like Marcel Boucher, Balenciaga, Chanel, Dior, Kenneth Jay Lane, and Gripoix.

You can check out the mindblowing accessory collection when the exhibit opens June 25th. An Assouline-published book will accompany the show, which runs through January 20th.
