The exhibit, featuring more than sixty designs from 1950 to the present day, attracted the likes of Sarah Burton, Erdem Moralioglu and Alice Temperley.

Meanwhile, take a looksie at some of the jewels to be displayed this summer at Buckingham Palace, like the Cullinan III and IV broach.  The baubles, made from the largest diamond ever found, will be shown to the public at the Diamonds: A Jubilee Celebration exhibition, part of the Summer Opening of Buckingham Palace from June 30th – July 8th and July 31st – October 7th. 

The exhibit will showcase seven of the 9 stones cut from the Cullinan Diamond – the remaining two from part of the Crown Jewels.
