A new edition of the critically acclaimed Pearls: Treasures from the Seas and the Rivers exhibition will open in Moscow on July 11th as part of the Qatar Russia 2018 Year of Culture.




The exhibition was curated specifically for this year’s Year of Culture programme and will display over 100 pieces of jewellery and other examples of pearl craftsmanship made from freshwater pearls born in Central Asia, 50 of which are new, never-before-shown artifacts.



The Qatar Museums (QM) exhibition is hosted by the World Diamond Museum at the Exhibition Centre of the State Historical Museum in Moscow from 11 July 2018 to 1 October 2018.



The exhibition, which is considered one of QM’s flagship initiatives and is the first travelling exhibition organised by the institution, was designed to introduce audiences to the history and transformative impact that the pearl industry had on Qatar and the world.




It chronicles pearl fishing in Qatar, providing an insight into the ancient methods and techniques used by pearl divers and an overview of the pearl trade in the Gulf.



This is the sixth time that Pearls: Treasures from the Seas and the Rivers has travelled around the world, with the last show taking place in China as part of the Qatar China 2016 Year of Culture.



Commenting on the exhibition, its curator Dr. Hubert Bari said: “Pearls have long inspired artists and painters with their quiet elegance and mystery. This diverse exhibition will answer many of the questions surrounding these natural wonders, while taking visitors on a fascinating journey through the history of pearl diving and trade in Qatar.



The exhibition is a major highlight of the Qatar Russia 2018 Year of Culture, which will see two great cultures explore unexpected historical parallels through the use of pearls in traditional design and jewellery making. We hope that this is something that will help bring our people and countries ever closer together.”

About the World Diamond Museum



The World Diamond Museum is the most comprehensive research, preservation and education cultural project. Magnificent collections of diamonds and diamond jewellery are held in many major museums, collections and archives of jewellery houses, in the historic Crown Jewel collections of royal dynasties as well as in private collections. But for the most part they all are inaccessible to the general public. All these masterpieces are brought together by the World Diamond Museum that collects information from across the globe and through the centuries.



Differently from any other existing venues, the World Diamond Museum is a living, online museum that offers encompassing information, images and narratives about diamonds and diamond jewellery and does ground-breaking research to record undocumented facts and diamonds of repute.



Conceptualised by Alex Popov, President of the Moscow Diamond Bourse, the museum focuses on human interaction with the gem, hence its name – the Facets of Mankind. Museum researchers engage in new photography, multimedia and book publishing, as well as organizing and participating in travelling exhibitions around the world.
 




About the State Historical Museum



The State Historical Museum was founded on February 9, 1872 by Emperor Alexander II.
