Fée de l’Hiver clip - White gold, diamonds
The Contes d’Hiver collection opens with an ice fairy, illustrating both the theme of enchantment and the Maison’s cherished tradition of feminine figures. The structure of the clip, with its multiple effects of depth and openwork, accentuates the interplay of reflections and light.
In an additional feat of ingenuity, the piece contains a mechanism enabling the fairy’s magic wand and wing to come to life. This unexpected effect is in keeping with the secret watches and jewels created by Van Cleef & Arpels throughout its history to inspire a sense of wonder.

Flocons Précieux bracelet - White gold, diamonds.
Like a pure-lined shooting star, the Flocons Precieux bracelet wraps the wrist in two white gold volutes set with round and baguette-cut diamonds. The piece opens using invisible springs, while the glittering snowflake motif positions itself flexibly against the skin to guarantee the bracelet’s comfort.

Flocons Precieux earrings illuminate the face in a sparkle of different gemstone cuts. Round, pear-shaped, rose, marquise and baguette cut diamonds form a delicate openwork mosaic in homage to the season of ice. Underlining the ensemble’s vivacity, different types of setting (prong, closed, rail) bear witness to the Maison’s virtuoso savoir-faire.
Flocons Précieux necklace - White gold, diamonds, one rose-cut D IF diamond weighing 2.60 carats, one pear-shaped D IF diamond weighing 4.34 carats.
The Flocons Précieux necklace stands out for its unusual shape, hugging the neck on one side before plunging deep into the neckline.
Two delicately adjusted diamond snowflakes – including a rose-cut diamond weighing 2.60 carats – adorn one extremity, while interlaced lines culminate majestically in a pear-shaped D IF diamond weighing 4.34 carats. An ingenious system of springs is incorporated into the jewelry structure, ensuring that the piece is both comfortable and elegant to wear.
Envolée Précieuse Between the Finger Ring - White gold, diamonds, 2 pear-shaped and marquise-cut D IF diamonds for a total of 1.67 carats.
Dragonflies and butterflies have been part of Van Cleef & Arpels’ poetic universe since the 1920s. On the Envolee Precieuse Between the Finger Ring, a butterfly and dragonfly form an ethereal duo, captured in full flight. The dragonfly’s wings allow the light to circulate freely, while the butterfly spreads out in a gradation of diamonds, creating a remarkable impression of movement.
