The Most Coveted Jewels in the World Finally Revealed
Once called "the Fabergé of our time" by no less than Diane von Furstenberg, Joel Arthur Rosenthal (or JAR) is known for his exquisite fine jewellery and objets d'art created only for handpicked clientele in his Place Vendome atelier. But now, over 400 of his pieces will be on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC, and what an exhibition it is! Flower petals drip with rubies as though they are wilting from the sheer weight of the stones. A zebra mane glitters with diamonds, while a ram gets its wooly fur out of strings of the most delicate pearls. The exhibition opens on 20 November, but if you can't get to New York to see it for yourself, click through to see just a few of his stunning pieces.
