The Rhianon Vernon-Roberts Memorial Collection, established in 1991, consists of more than 130 works by Australian contemporary jewellers. It was initiated and has been actively supported by Jane and Barrie Vernon-Roberts as a memorial to their daughter Rhianon (1964–1990), a gifted young jeweller.

Pieces from the collection are now permanently on display in the Gallery 18a stairwell. The current display features beaded worked by leading Australian jewellers.
