In the subtropical greenhouse there, they show jewellery and objects for three weeks. This year the exhibition counts seventeen gold- and silversmiths and shows more than 60 pieces of jewellery that they especially made for this exhibition. The theme this year is Botanic Guardians.

From 2017, botanical gardens will present themselves as Botanic Guardian: keeper and gatekeeper of biodiversity. These gardens protect and maintain species of plants that are threatened, that no longer occur in the Netherlands or that disappeared in the wild. Each participant in the Utrechtse Schatten exhibition 2018 has given his or her own interpretation of this subject. Sometimes very literally, sometimes figuratively. The result ultimately has led to a special collection of jewellery and designs: in gold and in silver, big and small, with and without precious stones. In short, with a diversity that Mother Nature can be jealous of.
