    A special order story

      Ever since 1906, Van Cleef & Arpels’ special orders have offered clients the possibility of sharing the emotion of the creative process and bringing unique pieces of jewelry to life.  Discover such a special order story… At the request of one of its clients, Van Cleef & Arpels created an exceptional collection entitled “Four Seasons”, a celebration of love based on the theme of nature. The four pieces reflect the precious link connecting the Maison to its client.  

    • Summer necklace
    • HJ-Special_Order-2520x1424-Broche-V3
    • Winter earrings
    • Spring ring

      The emerald-set Spring ring symbolizes the beginning of a love story. A bud about to blossom, represented by a pink sapphire, evokes the burgeoning of feelings. 

    • Summer necklace

      Formed of a glittering cascade of diamond leaves, the Summer necklace recalls the power of passionate love. The Fairy adorning the clasp illustrates the magic of continuously renewed feelings. 

    • Fall bracelet with detachable clip

      The Fall bracelet represents eternal love. The Monarch Butterfly motif, which can be detached and worn as a clip, symbolizes the power of enduring feelings. 

    • Winter earrings

      The Winter earrings are a delicate yet powerful representation of romantic feelings. This emotion is portrayed by the bold pairing of diamonds and red coral.

    • Craftsmanship

      The Maison's Stone Experts will meticulously select gemstones and engage all their expertise in suggesting a final array of Pierres de Caractère. Guided by the creativity of the Design Studio, dreams take shape as gouache designs. Van Cleef & Arpels gives its clients the opportunity to participate in the different stages of the design of a High Jewelry piece. With their approval, the project is then entrusted to the Maison's workshops, located Place Vendôme. With painstaking attention to detail, it will be crafted as a unique piece by the “Mains d’Or”, who perpetuate age-old expertise.
