Wartski is delighted to announce its first exhibition in their new premises situated at 60 St James’s Street in London. It will be hosted from 1st to 7th October, 2019 and will showcase a carefully curated collection of engraved gems assembled by the firm over several years.
Entitled ‘Multum in Parvo’ (a Latin motto which translates as much in little), the exhibition will display over eighty intricate carvings in miniature, engraved into beautifully coloured and figured precious and semi-precious stones. Works of art by some of the most notable gem engravers of the 18th and 19th centuries will be represented, as well as examples dating from the Renaissance and Classical Antiquity.
