The historic address of the Forbidden City is reason enough to visit Beijing. But if your visit falls between April 11 to July 2, there’s an added reason to plan a day trip to the Palace Museum housed within said premises. That’s because esteemed French jeweller Chaumet has painstakingly amassed over 300 pieces of their greatest hits – including paintings, drawings and objet d’art – for an exhibition, titled Imperial Splendours. Such is the large scale of the exhibition that several prestigious museums are lending their backing to this project, namely Musée du Lourve, Château de Fontainebleau, and the Victoria and Albert Museum of London. And to put this retrospective in perspective, such a gathering of jewels of such pedigree doesn’t happen very often in this lifetime or the next. If you’re speculating about the star-studded line-up of royalty bling, Chaumet has dropped a teaser video (below). Just prepared to be overwhelmed all over again.
