Exhibit Description

This exhibit featured more than 4,000 carats of diamonds and celebrated the mystique of a gemstone that continues to fascinate gemologists and inspire designers and artists around the world. It also marked the U.S. debut of “Dreams of Diamonds,” a 160-page tome that, at 33 pounds and approximately three feet wide when open, is the largest book ever published on the subject. It showcases images of loose diamonds and diamond jewelry in fantastic, dreamy settings, and represents the work of a dozen of the most venerated designers and diamond houses in the world. A copy of the book is available by appointment for public reference and viewing at GIA’s library.
