How can something as small as a gem express so much about individuals and even societies?

This year, the Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle has teamed up with Van Cleef and Arpels to bring you their annual exhibition of precious stones, featuring more than 500 minerals, gems and works of art from the museum, and another 200 jewelry pieces on loan from Van Cleef and Arpels.

Through interactive screens and 40 showcases, you'll be able to learn more about the earth's 4.56 billion years of history, and see the dialogue between mother nature and artisanal craftsmanship through some of the rarest stones.

The final section of the exhibition gives a glimpse into the jewelers of the 17th century, including a reconstruction of Louis XV's golden fleece and a newly crafted piece by Van Cleef and Arpels.
