Like Cupid and his arrow, the creations enchant, every touch revealing a world of meaning. They are personal talismans, hiding memories, treasures and mysteries. Surprises to be rediscovered, time and time again. Behind every piece is a story waiting to be told. Let us take a chance to explore these elusive worlds.

As we step into a universe of unexpected metamorphoses, watch as the visible and invisible meet. Whether through unseen mechanisms or surprising color combinations, Le Secret is an invitation to roam undiscovered territories.
Secret des Amoureux clip
Cupid, the famous god of love from Roman mythology, invites the spectator to share a secret with a gesture meaning "shh!". Here he appears surrounded by his traditional symbols, perched on a purple-pink heart-shaped rubellite. His destiny is to spark love in the heart of men and women; the twisted gold thread bow holds an opulent garland of pink and mauve sapphires, while the arrows are punctuated with pear-shaped and baguette-cut diamonds.
Fleur bleue ring
Draped in a mosaic of emeralds, tourmalines and diamonds, the Fleur Bleue ring instantly captivates with the intensity of its central sapphire.
When turned 90° the upper section can be lifted to reveal a quotation by Oscar Wilde:
"A life without love is like a sunless garden."
Van Cleef & Arpels uses its expertise to transform necklaces into bracelets, bracelets into clips... A tribute to the ingenuity of the Maison's craftsmen, the collection is a combination of virtuosity and playfulness.

Pétale de Papillon detachable clips
A new flower in the wondrous garden of Van Cleef & Arpels, the Pétale de Papillon clip has a surprise in store: nestled at the heart of the corolla is a butterfly whose colors blend into those of the flower. Thanks to an undetectable mechanism, one of the petals lowers to release the precious animal which may then be worn on its own, as a clip.
