    Les Voyages Extraordinaires™ collection

    Back

    By basing a High Jewelry collection on Jules Verne’s The Extraordinary Voyages, Van Cleef & Arpels has placed the idea of “the journey” center stage:  the journey becomes a guiding principle and an escape from mundane reality. Like Verne, the Maison has always transformed its own travels into powerful sources of inspiration. Each Van Cleef & Arpels' creation is an invitation to explore new horizons.

    The High Jewelry collection Les Voyages Extraordinaires™ is inspired by four of Verne’s key novels. Five Weeks in a Balloon evokes the African savannah, while Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Seagoes in search of the mysterious inhabitants of the ocean depths.From the Earth to the Moon is a journey to the heart of the galaxy, while Journey to the Center of the Earth explores the marvels that lie beneath our feet.

    Like Verne’s novels, Van Cleef & Arpels’ collection is a hymn to the imagination.

    Together, they pay tribute to Nature in all her majestic beauty, as well as the pioneering spirit. Like Verne’s novels, Van Cleef & Arpels’ High Jewelry collection is a hymn to the imagination and to the power of dreams and fantasy. It alludes to the history of the Maison itself and to its representatives who have travelled the globe in search of the finest gems. Through their exquisite beauty, Van Cleef & Arpels’ creations evoke a fabulous journey to enchanted lands.
