Your Poetic Setting®

Throughout its history, Van Cleef & Arpels has upheld a tradition of celebrating romance. Today, we are here to help you commemorate your own unique love story.


Your Poetic Setting® is a special service offered by the Maison, through which we invite you to create your own engagement ring.

Like true love, a diamond is a precious gift, a treasure that will last a lifetime. Rare by nature, those selected by Van Cleef & Arpels are among the most exceptional of all. Each diamond, ranging from 0.3 to 3 carats, is carefully chosen by the Maison's experts according to the highest standards for both color (D and E) and clarity (IF to VVS2). The diamond chosen will illuminate the mounting of your choice from a selection of elegant and timeless models: Bonheur, Romance, Estelle, Perlée, Couture or Icône.

The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) has established a set of standards for certifying diamonds that determine the quality and value of a stone: The 4Cs (Colour – Clarity – Cut – Carat)

Van Cleef & Arpels goes one step further with a 5th C, the “Character” possessed by the stone. To evaluate this quality, expert gemologists gifted with an eye and a sense of discernment unique to the Maison, assess the fire and the spirit that make a particular gem stand out from the rest.

Every stone has a soul of its own.
