    Liane Liane

    An ode to elegance and femininity

    The Art of Movement

    The couture world, held dear by Van Cleef & Arpels since the 1940s, has suffused this High Jewelry collection with fluidity and movement. The Maison reinterprets an aesthetic of braided gold, transposing the flexibility of passementerie in a bold interplay of gold and colored stones.


    The necklace’s length can be altered using an adjustable clasp, enabling it to hug the neckline in a subtle play of asymmetry.

    These creations showcase daring combinations of materials. Each one expresses a unique elegance and reflects the Maison’s expertise in selecting, cutting and setting stones, all of them chosen in keeping with the highest standards.

    A singular elegance


    By highlighting the Cordes motif – which first appeared in 1946 – Van Cleef & Arpels is revisiting one of its leading styles of the mid- 20th century. A new enthusiasm for elegance and fashion was in full swing at the time. The Maison reinterpreted outfits and textiles from the feminine wardrobe, creating technical innovations like the famous Zip necklace.

    Composed of braided gold with a passementerie motif at its tips, the ropes were adapted to a wide range of pieces: bracelets, clips, earrings, secret watches, short or long necklaces. The latter have now inspired the Liane collection, a new expression of feminity by Van Cleef & Arpels.
