As a club we were delighted when our member Beatriz Chadour had a book launch and exhibition opening in Zurich.
Beatriz has been a member for several years and has curated exhibitions in the V&A and overseas. Beatriz Chadour-Sampson is an international jewellery historian, author and lecturer.
Beatriz opened a permanent display of the Alice and Louis Koch Collection of rings in the Swiss National Museum, Zurich. The collection goes back four generations and she has been curator of the collection for almost 35 years. This display has 1500 rings on this permanent display which she has curated.
Her two books have just been published; The Power of Love – Jewels, Romance and Eternity; Rings of the 20th and 21st Centuries based on the Alice and Louis Koch Collection.
