Inspiration

Illuminating the Maison’s creations with their radiant gleam, golden beads
have been part of Van Cleef & Arpels’ stylistic legacy since the 1920s.

Know-how

From the meticulous polishing and setting through to the choice of diamonds,
each step of the Perlée creation benefits from the Maison’s unique expertise,
perpetuated in its workshops for over a century by the Mains d’Or™.

The jeweler shapes each golden bead one by one, then forms a row perfectly aligned with the curve of the creation.

Dazzling on the front and subtle on the back, the manual polishing of each openwork honeycomb setting enhances the diamond’s sparkle.

All of the diamonds, carefully selected by the Maison using the most stringent criteria, are set using the round bead setting technique.

The golden beads are manually united after all of the parts have been perfectly prepared and pre-polished.

Creations are meticulously polished each step of the way to create a perfect brilliance that reveals their beauty.
