When Gold Blossoms: Indian Jewelry from the Susan L. Beningson Collection opens tomorrow at the Asia Society, Hong Kong Center. The 180-piece exhibition offers a glimpse into Indian’s rich cultural history, focuses on Southern Indian jewellery, particularly for deities and women.

The fascination of this collection lies not only in the delicate designs and luminous gems of the jewellery, but also in the experience of the pieces which is a deeply personal one. Objects in this collection interact with the wearer. They are both shaped by, and shapers of experience.

The collection will show at its final destination in Hong Kong after touring around the States. It is hoped to educate Westerners, Asians, as well as modern Indians the Southern Indian’s age-old cultural values.

Take inspiration from the deeply spiritual jewellery collection for our S/S 14 Macro trend Next Nature.
