Cartier Exhibition at the National Gallery of Australia

The National Gallery of Australia’s extraordinary exhibition—featuring many of the world’s greatest jewels—opens in Canberra on 30 March. Cartier: The Exhibition includes the tiara loaned to Catherine Middleton on her wedding day by Her Majesty The Queen, Grace Kelly’s engagement ring and Elizabeth Taylor’s ruby and diamond necklace, along with some of the most exquisite pieces from the stunning Cartier Collection.

Today Academy-Award nominated Australian actress, Naomi Watts, was a special guest to celebrate the launch of Cartier: The Exhibition. ‘It’s fantastic to be in Canberra to see this gorgeous exhibition,’ said Ms Watts. ‘It’s a beautiful show full of history and style that all Australians must see.’

Featuring more than 300 works of art, the exhibition showcases outstanding necklaces, brooches, tiaras, watches and ornaments, alongside rarely seen archival drawings, photographs and ephemera. Co-curated by Margaret Young-Sánchez, formerly Chief Curator of Denver Art Museum and the NGA, the exhibition showcases pieces from the Cartier Collection, museums, institutions and private collectors.
