Known as one of the most pres­ti­gious events of its kind, with a his­tory of over 50 years, ex­hibitors in­clude brands such as Bul­gari, Van Cleef & Ar­pels, and Cartier, Car­tie as well as Hong Kong-based jew­eller, Wal­lace Chan – the only Asian As jew­eller in­vited to ex­hibit at the Bi­en­nale des An­ti­quaires. High­lights this year in­clude an ink-and-pa­per col­lage work called “Qua­tre Femmes” by Le Cor­bus­ier, and dec­o­ra­tive items that date back to the early Han Dy­nasty. Cartier will present some of its most spec­tac­u­lar stones, in­clud­ing The Ab­so­lute Pure Di­a­mond, a D colour, In­ter­nally Flaw­less 30.21-carat bril­liant­cut pear-shaped di­a­mond.
