Before I left Shanghai, I was able to visit Van Cleef & Arpels’ newest exhibit, Timeless Beauty, at the Museum of Contemporary Art. It was a breathtaking two-story exhibit with over 370 pieces, including jewelry, watches, accessories and archived drawings, from 1906 to 2010. I really enjoyed the short videos, highlighting the history of Van Cleef & Arpels at the Place Vendôme and the handwork behind these magnificent pieces. All together, I think there were seven videos and an hour of footage. If you’re headed to Paris in the near future, you’re in luck! The exhibit will be at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs from September 20, 2012 to February 10, 2013. You’ll have to see it in person because my digital camera does not do these pieces justice!
