Jewels by JAR at the Metropolitan Museum of Art


From November 20, 2013 until March 9, 2014, the Metropolitan Museum of Art will exhibit over four hundred pieces of jewelry by Joel A. Rosenthal.  It will be the first retrospective of the designer’s work in America and he will be the first contemporary “gem artist” exhibited at the Met. Above is a diamond bracelet he designed in 2010.

"He is known for his pavé technique—the setting of small stones so close together that they appear as a continuous surface of jewels—and uses subtle gradations of color to create a painterly effect." - the Met
