Natural History Museum


Many of the world’s most beautiful and spectacular diamonds star in this celebration of the most seductive of all gemstones. The biggest ever diamonds exhibition, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see such an astonishing array of important diamonds in one exhibition.
The Aurora Collection, a stunning set of 296 naturally coloured diamonds, is displayed for the first time ever in Europe, as well as extraordinarily rare large single stones including the Allnatt, one of the few vivid yellow diamonds, and the Steinmetz Pink, which took almost two years to cut. Diamonds will also showcase some of the world’s most impressive historic pieces, the latest in modern designs and fascinating science and technology.
Diamonds celebrates the natural and cultural power of these extraordinary gemstones and reveals the story of their evolution from deep in the Earth to the red carpet.

Diamonds has been made possible by the generous support of principal sponsor Steinmetz, with additional support from the Diamond Trading Company.

This exhibition of new work is the result of collaboration between Diane and seven Museum scientists. Since she first began sculpting in the 1980s, Diane Maclean’s work has related to the environment. She has previously participated in numerous shows in Britain, the Baltic countries, Scandinavia and elsewhere in Europe and her sculptures are in many public collections in Britain, Lithuania and Finland.

Face to Face: Photography by James Mollison

James Mollison’s extraordinary images of apes will be exhibited for the first time in Face to Face.

Face to Face will present Mollison’s sensitive photography within the context of Charles Darwin’s theories of human evolution. These beautiful and emotive ape portraits highlight the vitality and intelligence of these magnificent and threatened animals, and their similarity to humans. The exhibition encourages us to consider our relationship with, and our treatment of, the natural world. A series of events will give visitors the opportunity to further develop the ideas explored in Face to Face.

Face to Face is supported by Benetton Group SPA
