‘Flames of opal essence’ – KREIS Jewellery

KREIS Jewellery at Gem Geneve – ‘Flames of Opal Essence’. A once in a lifetime opportunity to discover some of the most astonishing pieces of opals in the world. All made possible by the GemGeneve exhibition team, private collectors, the Geneva Museum of Art and History, Piaget, and many more who opened up their vaults to share their passion with the world in Geneva, Switzerland for a short period of time.

A special thank you has to go to the GemGeneve exhibition team – Without their tremendous efforts, this exhibition would not have been possible!

The exhibition is open to the public – 9 to 12 May 2024. More about ‘Flames of Opal Essence’ can be found here.
