The Smithsonian Cup, crafted of agate, gold, silver and mother-of-pearl, was dedicated to the National Museum of Natural History in 2000 to celebrate the opening of “Buccellati: Gold, Silver and Gems,” an exhibition highlighting the works of the Italian jeweler, House of Buccellati. Thirteen years after its initial debut, the Smithsonian Cup is now back on display in the Janet Annenberg Hooker Hall of Geology, Gems and Minerals. (Photo courtesy of Buccellati)
