Gemology and the history of Van Cleef and Arpels come together in this exhibition, which celebrates the innovation of the jewellery house throughout the years. In partnership with the French National Museum of Natural History, the ArtScience Museum takes you through over 400 precious jewels and pieces, across nine rooms with seven themes. Highlights of the multi-sensory experience are: the bird clip and pendant from the '70s, also the emblem of the exhibition; a zip necklace made of gold, platinum, rubies and diamonds that transforms into a bracelet; and the peony clip commissioned by HRH Princess Faiza of Egypt.
