A men’s rings collecting journey from Yves Gastou

Event Details

Standing today as a testament to an extraordinary quest, L’ÉCOLE Asia Pacific, School of Jewelry Arts, unveils an unprecedented collection of Men’s Rings. This selection of over 300 rings embodies the 40-year passion of a man: the late French connoisseur and reputable art dealer, Yves Gastou.

In the exhibition “Men’s Rings, Yves Gastou Collection,” Visitors are invited to witness the vast geographical and temporal span: from the 17th century Venice doge rings to the 1970s American biker rings, from skull rings to bishop’s rings. These objects delight the eye with their intense beauty, enlighten the mind with their myriad functions and surprise by their eclecticism. They are witness of travels, symbols of power and spirituality.

The exhibition is free admission, with guided tours available in English, Cantonese or Mandarin. Register online now!
