Rare: A Group Exhibition
Luke Maninov Hammond

20 JULY - 20 AUGUST, 2022
Rare is a new group exhibition of contemporary jewellers at Pieces of Eight Gallery, celebrating the diversity of unique diamonds and natural coloured gemstones.
Our artists were free to explore their personal realm of inspiration, resulting in an array of diverse themes and outcomes. From environmental decay and the rarity of our diminishing landscape, to the highly sought after – and hence, increasingly rare – blue-green tones of the Australian parti sapphire, to the intriguing inclusions found within one of a kind diamonds.
Expressed through contemporary design and unique gemstone cuts, this survey of creative fine and precious jewellery represents a veritable treasure chest that honours the preciousness of materials gleaned from the earth.
