Jewellery and metalwork in the museums of Georgia introduces the reader to the the world of ancient and highly original artistic traditions. The first part of the book presents Georgian jewelry and metalwork from pre-Christian times. The second part deals with the collection of medieval chased and embossed work from the Art Museum of Georgia, which comprises the collections of the former Church Museum and of the Ancient Arts Museum of the University of Georgia. The museum possesses a valuable collection of the feudal epoch (4th - 18th centuries), which boasts such gems as the 10th-century Chalice of Bedia, the Khakhuli triptych, and the works by the celebrated Georgian goldsmiths Beka and Beshken Opizari.
