“The Art of Gold” exhibition at L’ÉCOLE in Hong Kong 

Exhibition - March 1, 2021

L’ÉCOLE, School of Jewelry Arts supported by Van Cleef & Arpels invites you to travel through time to witness the imperishable radiance and lasting power of gold, as it has played a symbolic and decorative role since the 5th millennium BCE.


Featuring a selection of masterpieces from the Mengdiexuan collection, the exhibition “The Art of Gold, 3000 years of Chinese Treasures” (26.03.2021 – 29.8.2021, Hong Kong SAR, China) illustrates over three thousand years of goldsmithing in China, through four major techniques namely hammering and chasing, casting, granulation, wire and filigree. From necklaces, bracelets and earrings, to hairpins, brooches and belt plaques, they take visitors on a journey across central China, the Steppes, the Mongolia and the Himalaya, spanning three millennia from Shang dynasty to Qing dynasty, presenting the goldsmithing techniques that still intrigue connoisseurs’ eyes in the modern days.
