Join Pieces of Eight for a special Gem School expedition into the National Gallery of Victoria’s art collection, currently on show. Led by a jeweller/gemologist/curator, we take you on an intimate and personal journey of art and adornment – traversing several artworks over the space of 60 minutes. Our tour guides fossick out a selection of NGV Asian artworks that each reveal a complex and fascinating story of adornment through the ages. Jewels and gems are laden in cultural significance – symbolising wealth, class, momentous occasions and personal milestones.

Presented by the Pieces of Eight Gem School, this guided tour will have you reading and appreciating art in a completely new light. An event for anyone who adores art, design and most importantly – adornment.
