Exhibited for the first time ever, this natural pearl, the oldest known in the world, is one of the most moving pieces in the show “10,000 Years of Luxury” (which features 350 items from the Arts Décoratifs, Louvre and quai Branly museums). Discovered in a Neolithic site (between 5,800 and 5,600 BC), it has been dated at 8,000 years old by specialists. It also reminds us that the Gulf States were the centre of a flourishing pearl trade until the 1920s. To be continued on TFJP.
