Created by Van Cleef & Arpels in 1968, the four-leaf clover-inspired Alhambra® jewelry collection established itself as a timeless symbol of luck. A celebration of the Maison's creativity, its pure lines and distinctive beaded silhouette are brought to life with a broad palette of natural materials.
In keeping with the Maison's high standards, the ornamental stones that adorn the creations have been selected among the finest materials. The onyx draws its charm from the depth of its black color, while the white mother-of-pearl has been chosen for the delicateness of its iridescence, accentuated by careful polishing.
Ornemental stones and diamonds match in delicate harmonies of materials. The radiance of the first of the precious stones enhance the regular striations of the malachite.
Faithful to Van Cleef & Arpels' tradition of excellence, the Alhambra collection reflects all the expertise of a High Jewelry Maison. Different crafts have come together for each piece, ranging from the lapidary to the jeweler, from the stone-setter to the polisher.
