Diamonds are a Girl´s Best Friend!


Ever dream of being Grace Kelly or Coco Chanel?  Or owning their diamonds atleast?  Now you can live vicariously through them while visiting the special Cartier exhibit at the Thyssen museum in Madrid.

Enjoy gazing at over 400 pieces ranging from 1847 to present day.  Get lost in the glittery pieces such as early 20th century tiaras, art deco pieces, exotic gems from far off lands such as India and China, ¨Tutti Frutti¨gems (these are studded with rubies, sapphires and emeralds) and of course jewels owned by Grace Kelly, Coco Chanel, Elizabeth Taylor, María Felix and Wallis Simpson.

Details as follows:

Dates: October 24, 2012 – February 17, 2013

For more information, visit the Thyssen website.

Additionally, this is a great time to spend a day at the Thyssen, as there is also a special exhibit from painter Paul Gauguin that runs until Jan. 13th, 2013.  You can find information on the Gauguin exhibit on the Thyssen website.
