The watch is egg-shaped, and evoques the tradition of Easter eggs that were offered in the imperial russian family.
Faberge exhibited magnificent eggs in 1900 at the "Exposition universelle de Paris". At the same period, Cartier brothers started relationships with Russia and started seasonal trade in St Petersburg from 1907.
Hi. Does anybody knew the requirements if someone wishes to display a pearl in an exhibition fare, e.g., Pearl Exhibit in Hong Kong or elsewhere? And how is it done? Are there handlers to guarantee the safety of the pearls.
I'm offering some of my collections to be displayed for pearl enthusiasts to see the beauty of gigantic pearls.
Tips, suggestions and advice are very much welcome most especially from those who had experienced a pearl exhibit.
Called " Collier absolu" or "absolute necklace" : a platinum necklace, a 30 carat pear-shaped diamond of absolute clarity, 2 kite shaped diamonds for 7, 26 carat and …
a 17,41 grains natural pearl.
It goes with a pair of matched earrings, just in case you feel too naked with the necklace "only" .
On the contrary if you think the necklace is "too much", one diamond can be adapted on a ring.
So what's your opinion?
The photos of these magnificent jewels are very greatly appreciated! One of my most favorite things to do whenever I'm in DC, is to visit the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. I can spend hours in the gems and minerals exhibit. And the Cartier exhibit at the Hillwood Museum, also in DC, runs through the end of the year.
The Hillwood Museum is an amazing place with Cartier's famous pearl necklace of Marjorie Post.
Now this is the last photo for this thread and the very famous pearl "perle royale" of 166 grains in a tiara transformable into a necklace. Additional fine pearls and diamonds on the tiara, see the delicate shades of the button natural pearls on the sides.
The orient, luster, shape, size of this pearl make it (we say "her" in french ) one of the finest and most beautiful natural pearls in the world. … by Cartier.
Matching earrings available …
This pearl once belonged to Queen Mary. I can't stop contemplating this wonder. Do you?
