Van Cleef & Arpels has teamed up with the Artscience Museum at Marina Bay Sands to present an exhibition called The Art & Science Of Gems. The French National Museum of Natural History, with its contribution of 250 minerals, has also co-curated this stunning exhibition that brings together art, craft, history and geoscience. See our snapshots here.

Visitors will learn how gemstones are created deep inside the Earth, and how these are transformed into works of art. Or you can just go to ogle the jewellery – there will be over 400 gorgeous pieces from Van Cleef & Arpels.

The Art & Science Of Gems is on at the Artscience Museum, and ends Aug 14.
