Intro
The jewels on display share sensations and feelings, as a longing for the past or a particular way of expressing reality. Each artist creates a connection between these works and the body, setting up a dialogue between the wearer and observer, creating a powerful link between them.

Coyoacán has been an iconic part of Mexico since pre-Hispanic times until today. The area’s history along with its artistic, cultural, and architectural treasures, have transformed Mexico’s characteristic syncretism into a veritable jewel. 

This exhibition marks the 500th anniversary of Coyocan’s town council. For this event, sixteen jewellers have paid homage to the district through contemporary jewellery, conveying a significant message that inspires us to reflect on this celebration through a wide range of materials, techniques, and forms. 

The jewels on display share sensations and feelings, as a longing for the past or a particular way of expressing reality. Each artist creates a connection between these works and the body, setting up a dialogue between the wearer and observer, creating a powerful link between them.

Each artist’s design and visual language is a journey through Coyoacán. We invite visitors to explore these creations and become bearers of this district as if wearing a beautiful broach or an exquisite necklace on an exploration to discover what distinguishes and inspires this historical and magical place.


Opening hours: Daily from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm.
