Exploring the worlds of exquisite jewellery and their links to minerals, Van Cleef & Arpels: The Art and Science of Gems exhibition will premiere at Marina Bay Sands’ ArtScience Museum on April 23. Co-curated with ArtScience Museum, over 400 stunning creations from Van Cleef & Arpels and 250 minerals from the French National Museum of Natural History Collection will be on display.
A first for Van Cleef & Arpels, the exhibition will feature two complementing routes to showcase the intersection between the science of mineralogy and the art of jewellery making. The exhibition blends art, crafts, history and geoscience in a highly distinctive manner, taking visitors on a dramatic journey that begins with the origin of minerals within the heart of the Earth, and culminates with the extraordinary craftsmanship that transfigures these gems into works of art
Documenting over 100 years of history, Van Cleef & Arpels: The Art & Science of Gems is the largest heritage exhibition of Van Cleef & Arpels.
Venue: ArtScience Museum at Marina Bay Sands
When: 23 Apr - 5 Jun 2016,
