Brilliant: Cartier in the 20th Century at the Denver Art Museum is the very embodiment of old-world glamor. Including a necklace of Elizabeth Taylor’s, classic watches, and statement jewelry worth more than several island nation’s combined GDPs, the exhibit gleams with something you won’t want to miss. This weekend is the final weekend to catch the exhibit in Denver.
