Diane Venet tells the fascinating story of her collection of artists’ jewellery. Presented in the exhibition Ornamentum, the collection brings together nearly 200 pieces, small and precious works of art that question the meaning and function of jewellery. From Kapoor to Braque, via Vasarely, Stella, Arman, César and Dali, they are always the result of an encounter. In conversation with the journalist Aurore Vaucelle, Diane Venet looks back at the stories and love affairs that are at the heart of each piece of jewellery.
