The Metropolitan Museum of Art. The American Museum of Natural History.
These are familiar institutions that you may have visited, considered visiting, or heard of in passing.
While these landmarks are popular for a reason, there are tens of thousands of other museums across the U.S. that many people are not as familiar with.

The Foundation of Igor Carl Fabergé, with headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland, aims to raise awareness of the work and life of Carl Fabergé during his time as a jeweler at the Imperial Court in St. Petersburg, Russia.
It brings together many books, publications, memorabilia, and other historic objects relating to his professional artistic activity.
The same aim also extends to his grandson, Igor Carl Fabergé and his personal works of jewellery art.
The committee has decided to celebrate Foundation’s 40th anniversary as well as the date of passing of Igor Carl Fabergé by bringing together collectors and enthusiasts from all over the world to their headquarters, where a unique exhibition will be held.
GENEVA, 23 AUGUST 2022 – It’s official! By popular demand from its exhibitors, GemGenève is holding a second, exceptional edition again this year in Geneva. “We had initially planned to hold only one edition, in May 2022. Following calls from our exhibitors, we´ve decided to organize a second edition in autumn 2022 in Geneva, but this shouldn’t become standard practice in the future”, emphasizes Ronny Totah.
The 5th meeting of gemology and jewellery professionals and enthusiasts will therefore open its doors from Thursday, 3rd November to Sunday, 6th November in Palexpo, this time in Hall 6. It will coincide once again with the major autumnal auction sales of the Geneva Luxury Week.
