Precious Metals



    A natural partner for diamonds, platinum has been coveted by jewelers for thousands of years. As a precious metal, it is used practically pure in a 95% alloy. Its purity, rarity, and unique silver-white color lend exceptional luminosity and sparkle to diamonds and settings. Platinum is unaffected by air and moisture. Once a jewel has been created, it will retain its original form forever.

    Its purity, rarity and unique color lend exceptional luminosity and sparkle to diamonds.

    Platinum plate

    This exceptional metal has pride of place in Van Cleef & Arpels’Snowflake collection, among others.

    To provide clients with a guarantee of the highest quality, the Maison’s jewelers stamp all platinum jewelry with a hallmark certifying its purity. In France and throughout much of the world, the quality hallmark for platinum depicts the head of a dog.

    But in some countries like Great Britain, the Netherlands, or Switzerland, the hallmark represents the head of a St. Bernard and a scale of 950 thousandths.
