    California rêverie collection

    Back

    California. The very name has a mythical ring. It evokes vivid images of open spaces, wild natural landscapes, scenic highways, and impressive coastal scenery. Seen from Europe, the California coast is like the final destination on a long westward journey, begun many centuries ago. So it is fitting that Van Cleef & Arpels celebrates its 70 year presence in America with a High Jewelry collection named California Rêverie.

    This dreamlike vision of Nature has given birth to uniquely colorful jewels.

    Nature in California must have been designed for a wide-angle lens: the seascapes, the huge national parks, the giant trees that give shelter to multicolored butterflies and hummingbirds. It has inspired generations of artists and provided the setting for a uniquely laid-back lifestyle. It is this lifestyle that gave rise to the big, bold pieces and daring color combinations that defined the Maison’s style in America in the 60’s and 70’s. California Rêverie revisits this period. It explores the wealth of inspiration derived from California’s majestic scenery, like a half-real, half-imaginary trip down the West Coast. This dreamlike vison of Nature has given birth to uniquely colorful jewels. They are a tribute to America, to emotion, and to California’s famously good vibrations.
