From September 6, 2021 to January 9, 2022, the Van Cleef & Arpels boutique located at 10 via Monte Napoleone in Milan is hosting the exhibition "Creazioni oltre il tempo", a journey through the inspirations of the Maison. Almost two years after the inauguration of the "Van Cleef & Arpels: Time, Nature, Love" exhibition, pieces of High Jewelry, Jewelry and Watchmaking, from the 1930s to the 1970s, have taken over the Lombard capital. Thirty-two historical examples of the Van Cleef & Arpels collection stand alongside sixty-seven contemporary creations and archival documents illustrating the Maison's major sources of inspiration: couture, nature, distant cultures, dance and love. Marking precise historical and stylistic moments, these jewelry marvels have become, thanks to their meticulous design and manufacturing, timeless creations.


For this occasion, the boutique offers a thematic route, rich in anecdotes and surprises, where certain pieces are exhibited for the first time in Italy.
