Fire and Ice

For those who favour technological ardour and know enough of crystalline desire, the upcoming MBS exhibition will set hearts on fire

Fire and Ice

The title of Robert Frost’s best known and most anthologised poem Fire and Ice is set to take on new meaning with the launch of Fire & Ice, an upscale and high-concept jewellery and timepiece exhibition at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands this month.
 
Curated by August Man (the definitive journal for the affluent man) and yours truly, Prestige Singapore, the exhibition showcases the fantastical creations of some of the finest jewellers and watchmakers found within the premier waterfront destination known for its high-end boutiques and Michelin-starred restaurants.
 
Themed Fire & Ice — “Fire to represent the technological ardour that goes into the craft of watchmaking, and “Ice” to represent the crystalline beauty of precious gemstones — the exhibition displays a selection of iconic timepieces and jewellery, including the one-piece-only Vacheron Constantin Malte Regulator Tourbillon High Jewellery watch priced at more than $1.1 million and Chopard’s newly arrived Animal World Collection Hummingbird necklace set with 18.68ct worth of pink sapphires, 3,424 white diamonds, 710 tsavorites and 244 amethysts.
 
For a two-pronged immersive experience, the same curatorial and creative teams behind the exhibition’s stunning light-embedded, crystal-encased displays have also produced a tandem 32-page duo-cover publication that showcases the enduring trends in gems and timepieces.
 
Fire & Ice opens on August 15 with an invite-only soiree before it opens to the public from August 16 to 25.
