    The “La Boutique” Animal Clips


    In 1954, Van Cleef & Arpels opened “La Boutique” at 22 Place Vendôme. Initially intended to offer a younger and more accessible line of jewelry to a broader range of clientele, “La Boutique” introduced cartoon-style animal clips that added a playful note to the Maison’s creations.

    These charming little clips made delightful gifts, even icons such as Grace Kelly and Jackie Kennedy Onassis couldn’t resist collecting them.
