Jewellery that captures the movement, majesty, and sheer beauty of nature.
Time and time again, Van Cleef & Arpels proudly displays its love for flora and flauna through its designs. These special pieces are set in stone, but rarely in time, mirroring a fluid and constantly revolving cycle of nature.
The love story began in Paris, 1906. Van Cleef & Arpels’ creations have long been carved out from nature, with the Alhambra motif remaining synonymous with the high jewellery Maison.
Flora and fauna would continue to inspire the brand, with jewellery designs as if out of a page from a storybook, whether a corn poppy or blossoming cherry tree.
Take the Frivole collection: featuring heart-shaped petals, arranged three-dimensionally around diamonds. The Frivole ring is a favourite, and it so perfectly combines the graceful dimensions of flowers with geometry and dazzling shine.
Inspired by nature as a whole, Van Cleef & Arpels has since the ’20s, transformed the delicate beauty of a dragonfly, or curved silhouette of a stark, into jewellery like clips and earrings.
Flowering its growing garden is also an archive of designs inspired by butterflies and birds. The most recent interpretations of butterflies are seen with the Papillons High Jewelry collection and the Two Butterfly jewellery collection, capturing and reflecting light for an almost magical dance of precious gemstones and diamonds.
Where nature unfolds majestically, we know that’s where Van Cleef & Arpels will be, and continue to bring us along for a journey through jewellery.
