Gems! Colors of Light and Stone

A rare opportunity to enjoy a glimpse into the acclaimed Michael Scott Collection, among one of the most important gem collections in the world. Scott, a former president of Apple with a keen eye for truly magnificent gems, will be showing about one fifth of his collection, including the "Queen of Kilimanjaro," a tiara with a 242ct Tanzanite accented by one thousand brilliant Diamonds. The exhibition also highlights a gorgeous parrot head brooch with an incredibly rare sea blue Paraiba Tourmaline surrounded by over 31ct of Paraiba Tourmaline accents, Diamonds, platinum and white gold, as well as a necklace of rare Benitoites and a 400ct+ Golden Sapphire.
This is an event not to be missed!
