Van Cleef & Arpels "The Art of Movement" Exhibiton
Hosted by Gem X Core Gislain Aucremanne and Van Cleef & Arpels Patrimony & Exhibition Director Lise Macdonald
Gem X members in London were treated to an incredible double jewelry feature at The Design Museum. The afternoon began with a lecture by Van Cleef & Arpels Patrimony & Exhibition Director Lise Macdonald and Art Historian at L’ÉCOLE, School of Jewelry Arts Gislain Aucremanne about the intricately intertwined histories of ballet and jewelry. Then, we embarked on a private tour the new exhibition of dazzling jewels by Van Cleef & Arpels “Art of Movement”, including some of the jeweled ballerinas who had just been discussed, with Ms. Macdonald as our guide. From the story of the iconic zip necklace to stunning gouache archival drawings to the stages of the most famous ballets in the world, we pirouetted home on a jewelry high.
