ROM to present The Nature of Diamonds

The Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) is pleased to present The Nature of Diamonds, the most wide-ranging exhibition ever developed on the allure of diamonds. From Saturday, October 25, 2008 until Sunday, March 22, 2009, visitors to the ROM's Garfield Weston Exhibition Hall on level B2 in the Michael Lee-Chin Crystal will be dazzled by the exhibition's spectacular jewellery and stunning gemstones.

Diamonds is a reprise of an extremely successful and acclaimed exhibition, organised and toured by the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) in the late 1990s. Featuring approximately 500 objects, the current exhibition is enhanced by new components, absorbing computer animations and compelling multimedia in telling the rich and storied history of this extraordinary material.

In addition to being a collaborating institution on Diamonds, the ROM is proud to be the inaugural and sole Canadian venue in this exclusive North American tour.

William Thorsell, Director and CEO of the ROM, states, “The Nature of Diamonds brilliantly highlights the ROM's dual mandate of natural history and world cultures. Once again, we have collaborated with other renowned institutions to bring our visitors a comprehensive exhibition focusing on a fascinating, and highly appealing, subject.”

Exploring humankind's ongoing fascination with the diamond, the exhibition provides an in-depth look at it as a natural substance, exploring its origins, how it is mined, its cultural significance in art, literature and decoration, and its many uses in modern science and technology. This current exhibition includes an insightful examination of the Canadian diamond mining industry, co-ordinated by the ROM curatorial team.
