Inspired by Mediterranean landscapes, the collection of twelve unique pieces offers an aesthetic close from the Perlée jewelry collection.
Illustrating Van Cleef & Arpels’ penchant for ornamental stones and noblematerials, the Perles d’été collection unveils the beauty of highlights turquoise, a material dear to Van Cleef & Arpels particularly since the 1920s.
Brume de turquoise necklace with detachable pendant
This creation presents a majestic array of 19 cascade-set turquoise cabochons of intense color. The motifs are accented by a contour of golden beads that mingle with the yellow gold of a detachable pendant; diamonds and sapphires embellish the medallion in a seemingly arbitrary sequence.
The fruit of more than 800 hours of work, the Brume de turquoise necklace call forth a symphony of glimmering reflections and captures a Mediterranean landscape resplendent with a celestial palette and a sunny glow.
Onde de turquoise ring
The volume of a turquoise cabochon surfaces
amid a wreath of yellow gold gadroons, forming a halo of light. Fine prongs of varied sizes delicately hold in place a stone with uniform color, smooth, brilliant finish.
The azure plane of the Mediterranean Sea extends from golden coastlines, glistening under a brilliant sun.
The collection draws inspiration from the flamboyant aesthetic of “cocktail” jewelry, spectacular creations with their ample volumes and contrasting colors, worn at soirées in high-society and back into fashion in the 1960s and 1970s.
