The History of Van Cleef & Arpels lives on in successive generations. The archives bear witness to the value in which the Maison attaches to its heritage. With the High Jewelry collection Trésors Révélés, Van Cleef & Arpels revisits its own illustrious history. To celebrate its centenary in 2006, the Maison used its unique savoir-faire to bring to life exceptional creations designed between the 1920s and the 1960s.
Belle du jour necklace
Designed in the 1930s, this necklace unveils one of the Maison’s creative concepts: Metamorphosis. The Belle de Jour necklace is made up with white gold, round, marquise, square, and baguette-cut diamonds, and turquoise cabochons. The band around the neck can be worn alone as a necklace, while the two front ribbons can be worn as bracelets and their ends detached and worn as earrings. The ribbon at the back becomes a belt.
The original drawing from 1938 illustrates the thistle’s poetic form while also revealing all the artistry of the Mystery Set™. The Chardon clip is set with round, baguette, and rose-cut diamonds and Mystery Set rubies in white, yellow, and pink gold.
Drapé de Diamants necklace
Designed in around 1935, this necklace is composed of a ribbon that wraps delicately around the neck and ties into a knot on the shoulder. The Drapé de Diamants necklace is made up of white gold, asscher, emerald, marquise, baguette, and square-cut diamonds.
Jardin d'Orient Minaudière™ precious case
This Minaudière™ precious case designed in the 1925 is comprised of a palette of colorful stones delicately set in a sheet of deep black onyx. The Jardin d’Orient Minaudière™ precious case is set with yellow gold, onyx, amazonite, aventurine, jade, and coral.
Mers du Sud necklace
In this creation designed in 1930s, Van Cleef & Arpels creates an asymmetrical style by having the adjustable buckle clasp, which allows the length of the necklace to be changed as desired, attach to the shoulder with a clip when worn. The Mers du Sud necklace is made up of white gold, baguette-cut diamonds, jade, jadeite and turquoise beads.
