The diaphanous elegance of butterflies has always fascinated Van Cleef & Arpels. Since 1906, the Maison's creations have drawn inspiration from these delicate creatures, imitating their shimmering flutter with wings of precious stones. They take flight in the Butterflies collection.
The beauty of these enchanting beings has captured the imagination of the Maison’s craftsmen over the decades.
Butterflies fill us with wonder as they herald the return of spring. These bright creatures adorn precious clips and earrings in a variety of glimmering hues from iridescent mother-of-pearl to pink and mauve sapphires.
Over the decades, Van Cleef & Arpels has sought to recreate the effervescence of butterflies.
Figurative or abstract, the myriad creations in this collection capture their joyful flight.
A timeless symbol of femininity and elegance, it is no surprise that butterflies have been sought after in many Special Orders. These requests present an opportunity for the Maison to explore techniques to make its pieces ever more enchanting; from the volume of their form to the finesse of their setting.
Wherever a butterfly alights, color abounds.
