    Maria Callas, the legendary Greek soprano, caused a sensation each time she appeared in one of her long dresses, sparkling with beautiful Van Cleef & Arpels jewels. She loved jewels and was a passionate and discerning collector of fine pieces.

    “La Divina” was fascinated by the creations of Van Cleef & Arpels and never missed an opportunity to visit Van Cleef & Arpels’ salons at 22 Place Vendôme.

    Among the special orders which the Maison created for her over the years was the famous five-leaved brooch in diamonds and rubies in 1967. The platinum brooch is set with cushion-cut oval rubies, round, marquise, and baguette-cut diamonds. The total weight of the rubies is 15.77 carats and the diamonds 16.35 carats. The famous soprano wore the brooch on several occasions.
