    Couture

    Haute Couture and High Jewelry are kindred spirits. They inhabit a universe governed by the same eternal laws: a respect for tradition, the transmission of specialized skills, and the constant pursuit of perfection. Van Cleef & Arpels’ High Jewelry collection Couture is a tribute to these shared values. The grace and refinement of Haute Couture are reinterpreted through the eyes of a master-jeweler. Thematically, the Roaring Twenties have exerted a strong influence: much of the jewelry recalls the freedom, extravagance, and modernism which so marked that period. Sumptuous textiles are evoked by creations that imitate the fabric of fine garments. Ornaments like buttons, zips, pompoms, and ribbons are transformed into a glittering interplay of metal and precious stones.

    High fashion has always been an inspiration for Van Cleef & Arpels. Over the years, the Maison has transformed the evening bag into a sophisticated accessory like the Minaudière® precious case, adorned hats with diamond pins, and mimicked the appearance of cloth through precious metals. The Couture collection celebrates this exclusive art, in which craftsmanship is dedicated to an ideal of elegance.
