Our Pearls go to Brazil

2014

After travelling to Japan and the UK our pearls are now  en route to Fundação Armando Alvares Penteado (FAAP), which is a Brazilian higher education institution based São Paulo, Brazil.

Over 120 stunning pieces of jewellery and works of art will be displayed at FAAP.

The exhibition demonstrates Qatar’s role in bringing the world this natural gem, and helps an international audience better understand pearls, their origins and our local heritage.
