A fitting named showcase, the Opal showcase, was used in this project to display the Royal jewels.
Never before have so many incredible diamonds, emeralds and other precious stones been seen in Australia. Cartier: The Exhibition showcased more than 300 spectacular items, with loans from royal families, celebrities and the astonishing Cartier Collection itself, in exquisite settings such as royal tiaras, necklaces, brooches and earrings.
