Van Cleef & Arpels demonstrates all the expertise, creativity, and innovative skill required of a high jeweler with the creation of the Perroquet Mystérieux clip. As the key piece from the High Jewelry collection Les Voyages Extraordinaire™ the Mysterious Parrot, inspired by Jules Verne’s Five Weeks in a Balloon, represents a veritable feat in jewelry by combining the incomparable quality of its set stones with the highest technical expertise.
Two Mystery Set™ techniques were used to create this spectacular piece: the traditional and marquise-cut techniques are both used to highlight the pure whiteness of the baguette diamonds. With an air of peaceful serenity, this exotic bird with sapphire feathers perches gracefully on the branch of a tree blossoming with flowers of chalcedony and pink opals. The tail of the parrot ends with two pear-shaped diamonds nestled within gradations of sapphires.
