The collection includes jewels from the late 18th century to the early 20th century, which belonged to the latest Coronini Cronberg’s generations and, above all, to their wives. The jewels  reflect different styles, techniques and origins: the Russian jewellery, left by wish of Count Eduard Cassini after his death, is quite notable and include some of the most valuable and elegant items of the collection.
In general, the collection represents a sample of the various trends in jewellery making over the 19th century, from sentimental jewels to items in the style of archaeological and naturalistic jewellery, with an extraordinary variety of designs and materials, ranging from cameo to tortoiseshell, enamel and jet.
