The World Jewellery Museum presents Lovers from Prague, Czech Jewellery, the first major exhibition in Korea to explore the significance of Czech jewellery as one of the important European design movements of the twentieth century. The 100 works of jewellery featured in the exhibition include the famous Czech garnet jewellery and the iconic works by Svatopluk Kasalý, Eva Eisler, PavelOpo?enský, Stanislava Grebení?ková and Petr Dvo?ák.

The exhibition presents the two tendencies that are taking place in the Czech jewellery scene. Garnet is one of the oldest chronicled gemstones and has been held in high esteem for over 5000 years. The Czech Republic is the place where the "Pyrope" variety of garnets can be found, which has the deepest fiery red color of the entire garnet family. The historical traditions of Bohemian garnet jewellery are carried on by Granát Turnov, and the syndicate's creations are highly appreciated by lovers of Bohemian garnet from all over the world. From the 1960s there has been a new breed of Czech artists testing the boundaries of art and challenging the public with their revolutionary concepts of jewellery. The jewellery works created by the five invited artists bear witness to both the time and place of their making and testify these artists' deep commitment to artistic freedom of expression. 

The fundamental mission of the World Jewellery Museum is to preserve, collect and exhibit works of jewellery and in doing so it aims to lead the way in promoting and exchanging a deeper understanding of the diverse cultural movements around the world. The museum organizes several long-term exhibition programs of international design movements to the Korean general public, artists and specialists throughout the year. The museum also works to increase international awareness and appreciation for Korea's rapidly evolving design scene by organizing overseas Korean design exhibitions. In 2010, the World Jewellery Museum became the only Korean private museum to be selected by the Asia-Europe Museum Networks (ASEMUS) which consist of 70 institutions from over 25 ASEM countries.

The museum contributed a selection of 14 masterpieces from its collection to the Virtual Collection of Masterpieces (VCM), a project of ASEMUS with the purpose of enhancing mutual understanding of cultural differences and highlight similarities. The launch of this new exhibition provides an opportunity for cultural exchange and appreciation of the Czech Republic's contemporary design scene in Korea. Lovers from Prague, Czech Jewellery, organized jointly with the Embassy of the Czech Republic to Korea, is curated by Elaine Kim, Deputy director.

Garnet is one of the oldest chronicled gemstones and has been held in high esteem for over 5000 years. It is believed to represent faith, loyalty, truth, and devotion. The Czech Republic is the place where the "Pyrope" variety of garnets can be found. It has the deepest fiery red color of the entire garnet family. This vibrant jewel exhibits a lively light reflection and is rich with legends and myths
about its power. In the early 19th century the Bohemian garnet jewel became dominant in Europe and some of the finest and most famous garnet jewels were made during this period. Nowadays, the production of Bohemian garnet jewellery has been concentrated in Turnov and continues on the traditions and experiences inherited from its rich past.
