ALL THAT GLITTERS

 
ALL THAT GLITTERS
Posted May 30th, 2014 @ 8:38am

This one is for the girls.  Diamonds…..and gold, emeralds, turquoise and more.  Masterpieces of jewelry design by the legendary Bulgari, on display at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. 

Don’t roll your eyes, Guys.  It is science after all, metallurgy and gemology, and what skilled artisans can create from the very dirt of the Earth.

Throughout mankind there’s been, not only the creation of, but the fascination with, adornment. Bulgari is inspired by Greco-Roman classicism, the Italian Renaissance, and early 19th Century Roman goldsmiths and this exhibit showcases more than a century of modern production of ancient heritage.

There are more than 150 pieces on display to take your breath away.

And lacking Crown Jewels in America, seeing some of the pieces from the Elizabeth Taylor collection might give the same thrill.  Well, I did say, this one’s for the girls.
