Over the years, the Alhambra® collection has introduced new aesthetics to its offering, each providing an imaginative interpretation of the iconic motif so dear to Van Cleef & Arpels. Vintage Alhambra pieces, which reflect the collection’s original aesthetic, are complemented by elegant variations of motif symbols, colors and sizes.
Faithful to the first Alhambra long necklace created in 1968, Vintage Alhambra pieces stand out for their eminently recognizable style. Identical in size, each motif is edged in golden beads, and are set with natural and refined materials.
Boldly asymmetrical, Magic Alhambra creations feature a harmonious combination of shapes and materials. From carnelian and tiger’s eye, white and gray mother-of-pearl, white gold and diamonds, the motifs are interpreted in playful variety of sizes.
Capturing a spirit of grace and lightness, Sweet Alhambra expresses the tender lucky-charm motifs as miniatures. Alhambra motifs, hearts and butterflies delicately animate bracelets, pendants, earrings and watches.
A special source of inspiration for the Maison, nature has influenced the creation of new symbols of luck and love. Alone or combined with the Alhambra motif, hearts, butterflies, leaves and stars adorn Lucky Alhambra creations in a variety of materials and colors.
This interpretation of the Alhambra symbol mixes simple and harmonious lines with the gentle sheen of smooth gold. Polished and slightly billowed, the motifs are adorned mother-of-pearl, onyx or diamonds for a pure aesthetic.
Infused with understated elegance, the Byzantine Alhambra collection celebrates the iconic motif in its most graphic expression. Made exclusively in yellow gold, this line features a pendant and bracelet that bring together solid and openwork structures.
