Almost as rare as a perfect diamond is an exhibit with subject matter that is truly unique.
When that subject matter is stunning jewelry, timepieces, and precious objects created by the iconic French jewelry and luxury goods maker, Cartier, be prepared to be dazzled. The Brilliant: Cartier in the 20th Century exhibit at the Denver Art Museum runs November 16, 2014 through March 15, 2015, and features more than 250 rare pieces created by Cartier between 1900 and 1975.
Brilliant encapsulates the years when the Cartier name rose to fame. From Hollywood’s early glamour years to the Art Deco movement of the 1920’s, the exhibition will include signature pieces worn by Elizabeth Taylor and the Duchess of Windsor.
For those interested in experiencing one of the world’s most prestigious names in jewelry and luxurious accessories, Brilliant is not to be missed.
The exhibition is organized by the Denver Art Museum, and will be on view in the Anschutz and Martin and McCormick galleries on level two of the Hamilton Building. Tickets for Brilliant are $15 for members and start at $25 for adult nonmembers.
