Girls Disney Princess Filigree Tiara Necklace – $329
Disney Precious Collections, the fine-jewelry line for children, will be featured in a new exhibition featuring 600 original artworks instrumental in the development of some of Disney’s most beloved animated features.
The exhibition, “Dreams Come True: Art of the Classic Fairy Tales from the Walt Disney Studios,” will open at the New Orleans Museum of Art on Nov. 15 and will run through March 14, 2010.
The showcase of artworks from films such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and The Little Mermaid, among others, will coincide with the premiere of Disney’s newest animated feature film: The Princess and the Frog.
To commemorate the release and exhibit, Disney Precious Collections has produced a limited-edition pendant featuring a three-pointed princess crown. Crafted in 14-karat gold and accented with fine gemstones, the keepsake pendant will be available only at the New Orleans Museum of Art and via select Disney Precious Collections retailers.
In addition to viewing pieces from the Disney Precious Collections, which is composed of two lines: “The Enchanting Gemstones” collection of 14-karat gold with diamonds and precious gems, as well as “The Enduring Enamels” collection of handcrafted 14-karat gold and brightly painted enamel designs, visitors will have a chance to peruse a children’s section celebrating Disney’s connections with jazz music and New Orleans.
Visitors viewing the artworks, on loan from the Walt Disney Studio Animation Research Library, will find that they are accompanied by film clips helping to demonstrate how individual sketches and paintings lead to a finished animated masterpiece.
“We are thrilled to be a part of this unique event and believe strongly in the importance of what Disney has represented to children throughout the years, especially little girls, the true inspiration for the Disney Precious Collections,” Jack Gindi, marketing director of Disney Precious Collections, said in a media release.
“To be featured at such a world renowned venue as the New Orleans Museum of Art and to have our Disney jewelry stand alongside such respected and revered Disney artworks is a true honor to our team.”
