On September 14, the Airport Authority joined GIA (Gemological Institute of America) in officially opening the “GIA Celebrates Birthstones” exhibit at San Diego International Airport.The exhibitcontains more than 250 gems, minerals and jewelry from around the world.

 

“GIA Celebrates Birthstones” features lavish displays showcasing birthstones for each month of the year, as well as an enormous 22,000-carat faceted quartz and a replica of the jeweled Victoria’s Secret Bra. The exhibit will be on display through February 20, 2012 and is located in Terminal 2 West, post-security.

Representatives from both the Airport Authority and GIA addressed the crowd, includingGIA President and CEO Donna Baker. “We want to offer our heartfelt thanks and appreciation to the San Diego International Airport Art Program for providing us the opportunity to install the ‘GIA Celebrates Birthstones’ exhibit,” said Baker. “In selecting a focus for this display, we wanted to be relevant and appealing to all travelers from around the globe. Since everyone has a birthstone, it was the perfect choice. Our mission is to protect the public trust in gems and jewelry – and engaging, inspiring and educating people about gems and jewelry is part of that mission.”

“GIA Celebrates Birthstones” is part of the San Diego International Airport Art Program, which was established in 2006 to engage travelers in innovative, memorable and considerate experiences, creating an ambiance unique to San Diego and welcoming people to the airport and region. The program consists of three components: temporary and rotating exhibits, performing arts and public art. Visit art.san.org for more information.

Sounds like a neat exhibition- don't know if that bra would make it through TSA security though...
