A constellation of Asian celebrities descended upon Shanghai’s Museum of Contemporary Art for the opening gala of Van Cleef & Arpels‘ breathtaking “Timeless Beauty” exhibit.

Van Cleef & Arpels President & CEO Stanislas de Quercize, along with former French Prime Minister and Vice-President of the French Senate Jean-Pierre Raffarin, officially opened “Timeless Beauty” in the requisite ribbon-cutting ceremony, witnessed by Asian luminaries the likes of regal screen legend Gong Li and the stunning Fan Bingbing.

For the first time in China, more than 370 pieces gathered from the Maison’s Collection and from private French and international owners will be on display at the “Timeless Beauty” historical exhibit.

Spanning over 100 years of history, the exhibition will allow visitors to view the finest jewellery, watches, and precious accessories, as well as archival drawings and documents from the Vendôme Maison.
