Beautiful Creatures: Jewelry Inspired By The Animal Kingdom
Many of the most imaginative designs by the world s great jewelry houses and artisans take inspiration from the animal kingdom. From Cartier s iconic panthers to Bulgari s snakes and JAR s butterflies, these spectacular objects dripping with precious stones are akin to wearable art. Beautiful Creatures depicts some of the most spectacular beasts ever transformed into sparkling treasures and accompanies a special exhibition in the American Museum of Natural History s Allison and Roberto Mignone Halls of Gems and Minerals, opening in fall 2020. The 120 pieces featured date from the mid-1800s to the present, representing species from the realms of land, air, and water.
