Tower of Jewels

Tower of Jewels

Check out the display on the Tower of Jewels and Novagems from the 1915 San Francisco Panama-Pacific International Exposition in the foyer of the Special Collections Research Center on the 4th floor, South Wing. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the exposition. In celebration, Don Larson and noted Tower of Jewels and Novagem expert, Jay Stevens, put together a unique exhibit with a handmade backdrop created especially for the case by Stevens.

“The Tower of Jewels was the 435-foot tall centerpiece building … it was liberally decorated with 102,000 Novagems—faceted cut glass “jewels” that hung over the building’s surface … the Novagems were mounted on brass hangers with small mirrors behind them … breezes would make them independently sway, causing the building to shimmer … at night an assortment of 54 searchlights hidden around the tower were pointed towards it, creating a spectacular sparkling impression.” — from by Zoe Heimdal
