Fine jewellery brand Chaumet has opened doors on a new exhibition at the Palace Museum, also known as Beijing’s iconic Forbidden City.
The brand will present some 300 jewellery pieces, objets d’art, drawings and archive material alongside antiques from Imperial China, in a bid to present a “voyage from Paris to Beijing”.
The Imperial Splendours exhibition will also feature the presentation of a contemporary tiara – the result of a creative competition at Central Saint Martins art school in London.
The event is supported by prominent institutions, including the Musée du Louvre, the Château de Fontainebleau and the V&A.
The exhibition is open now until July 2, 2017.
