From September 12 to 15, a jewelry exhibition-sale “Treasures of St. Petersburg” will take place in the royal interiors of the Trubetskoy-Naryshkin mansion. 10 halls of the mansion will be occupied by modern jewelry collections, and in one of the halls there will be a unique exhibition “Vintage: from Chanel to Dior”.

Participants in the jewelry exhibition will show modern and classic collections of handmade jewelry and mass production. In total, over 50,000 jewelry from 150 jewelry companies and craftsmen will be presented. Each collection presented at the exhibition has its own unique history of creation, inspired by modern trends, the world around or female beauty. Jewelry is gracefully embodied in gold and silver with precious and semiprecious stones, with amber and pearls, and other stones and minerals. Many regions of the country will present their jewelry collections, including: Yakutia, Western Siberia and the Urals, St. Petersburg, Moscow and the Moscow region, Kostroma region and southern Russia. It never hurts to buy yourself beautiful jewelry, right?

The true “treasure hunters” are waiting for the exposition in the “Peter Hall” of the mansion, with the possibility of buying vintage and antique jewelry from the late XIX - early XX centuries. Who knows, maybe it’s jewelry of the maid of honor of the Empress, or of the representative of an ancient noble family.

The exposition will comprise collections of jewelry with aquamarines, so beloved in the last century, as well as rare cameos and jewelry with rhodochrosite, sea pearls, diamonds from the time of the king, heraldic seal, turquoise and amber. And in confirmation of the design itself and the manner of cutting the stones will say that the thing is really old. Lovers of vintage jewelry will find rare earrings-clips purchased at auctions, brooches and necklaces from famous mid-20th century brands from Europe and the USA: Christian Dior, Monet, Nina Ricci, Kenneth Lane, Miriam Haskell, Napier, Trifari and others.

A part of the presented collection will be unique pocket watches of the late XIX - early XX centuries in modern wrist cases made in the Petersburg workshop. Watches produced in famous factories (including Swiss) can be the pride of the collection and its owner. Watching time on rare watches is much more solid than on the screen of a mobile phone, isn't it?

 This time the exhibition will be held in the Trubetskoy-Naryshkin mansion, which has magnificent interiors and a rich history. The first known owner of the building was the great-grandfather of Alexander Pushkin, "the arap of Peter the Great" Abram Hannibal. In 1855, the mansion was acquired by Prince Peter Trubetskoy; he invites the famous architect Harald Bosse for a partial reconstruction of the building. In 1874, the new owner, Vasily Naryshkin, reconstructs the house again (the author of the project is architect Robert Gödike) and gives it the appearance that has survived to this day. During the restoration work in 2012, a unique treasure was found in the mansion, which was named by experts as one of the most valuable in history.

Anyone who wants to touch the history of this place will be offered a free tour on all days of the exhibition at 12:00, 15:00 and 17:00.
