Seven jewelry houses will present 25 of their top diamond jewelry pieces at the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) headquarters in Carlsbad, Calif.
Very soon California will host an exhibition celebrating the release of Dreams of Diamonds, the largest gemstone book ever published. Adler, Chatila, Chow Tai Fook, Diacore, Diarough, Mouawad and Munnu the Gem Palace will provide jewelry for the exhibition, which will sparkle with dazzling facets of diamonds totaling 4,000 carats. Among the most notable pieces on display will be a pair of shoes set with diamonds totaling 1,527 carats and a 50.05-carat colorless diamond of the highest clarity category.
The creators of Dreams of Diamonds managed to combine extraordinary diamond jewelry with enchanting, ephemeral backdrops. This exhibition is an ode to the wonderful world of diamonds, and we are very lucky to have the opportunity to present the creations of these seven jewelry houses to the public.Terry Ottaway, curator of the GIA Museum
The large-format book from British photographers and designers Alistair Laidlaw and Christy Marsden is filled with high-quality images of diamonds and diamond jewelry.
The exhibition will take place from April 29 to May 11. Attendance is free and available to all, but reservations are still required.
