"Floral jewelry, from day to evening" exhibition

Around forty pieces from Van Cleef & Arpels' collection highlight the theme of flora, a theme dear to the Maison. 

 

 When wearing these pieces from the 1930s to the 1960s certain rules of elegance were to resepect: prefer yellow gold for daytime and favor platinum for nocturnal creations. This distinction between "daytime jewelery" and "evening jewelery" disappeared during the hippie chic period of the 1970s and then reappeared ten years later, in the 1980s.

 

Accessories and precious objects are also showcased in this exhibition, offering a fabulous ground for the representation of the wonders of the flora.
