EXHIBITION: Experience the beauty and allure of pearls which across centuries and cultures have long been associated with wealth, royalty and glamour.

This autumn the V&A and the Qatar Museums Authority explore the history of pearls from the early Roman Empire through to present day.

On display is a stunning array of jewellery showcasing the variety of shapes and colours of pearls from established favourites such as Bulgari, Cartier, Chaumet, René Lalique and Tiffany, through to contemporary artist jewellers. The exhibition also looks at the creation of cultured pearls through Mikimoto and the impact this has had.
