Lucky Animals creations celebrate color and vivacity, by evoking one of the Maison’s dearest traditions: recounting a gentle and poetic nature.
From the outset, Van Cleef & Arpels’ jewelry has depicted a world of graceful and delicate animals. Diamond birds, colorful butterflies, perching squirrels, hopping rabbits and a host of other creatures have enriched the Maison’s menagerie over the years.
In 1954, the charming animals of the “La Boutique” collection opened a tender and light-hearted new chapter. Among them, the Lion ébouriffé and the Chat malicieux became genuine icons, cherished for their mischievous appearance.
In 2016, the High Jewelry collection “L’Arche de Noé racontée par Van Cleef & Arpels” explored the animal theme once again, with its, depictions of couples in precious and hard stones. A fresh vision of Van Cleef & Arpels’ menagerie, in which creativity and savoir-faire are intertwined.
