Beatrice Borromeo is an Italian aristocrat-turned-Monegasque royal with a penchant for haute couture, but she’s also well known for her elegant jewellery. The mother of two is the wife of Pierre Casiraghi, the grandson of Grace Kelly and Rainier III, Prince of Monaco, and she stars in a new campaign for Buccellati. Shot by British photographer Josh Olins in Rome, where Borromeo lived and worked as a political journalist and documentary maker a decade ago, Borromeo wows in several black-and-white photographs that capture her gracefulness.

6/7 Exhibition: Discover the Gemstones, Ruby & Sapphire

Discover the Gemstones, Ruby & Sapphire is the latest educational exhibition staged at L’École Asia Pacific, School of Jewelry Arts. For the display, gemmologist Billie Hughes used photomicrography to capture the snowflakelike cracks and pencilthin fractures found in gemstones. Rubies and sapphires accompany the photo exhibition, both in their natural form and set in jewellery, while visitors are encouraged to use microscopes to examine the sparklers for themselves. “Gemstones are often celebrated for their aesthetic beauty and vibrant colours,” says Olivier Segura, gemmologist and scientific director of L’École. “However, we want people to think beyond this."

Discover the Gemstones, Ruby & Sapphire exhibition at L’École Asia Pacific, School of Jewelry Arts, runs until September 30

7/7 Fred
