Cartier at the NGA

Last week, Paddy and I headed to the National Gallery to see the Cartier Exhibition. It was well worth the visit with many rooms of amazing "bling" as well as historical pieces and famous ones too. There is even a room devoted to the jewellers and their equipment and methods. My photos don't do the pieces justice but here are a few.

 There were even beautiful cards that were created for invitations and celebrations.
 We especially liked the amazing embroidery and beading on this gown.

At the end of the exhibition there was a room showcasing the jewels of famous people like Grace Kelly and Wallis Simpson. It was all quite amazing.

Wallis Simpson's collection of jewellery was stunning, there are some really iconic pieces that she owned and were sold. I would have loved to have seen the whole exhibition. Thanks for sharing all your pictures :)
