"The clip, a stylish and elegant piece" exhibition


From 21 January to 28 March 2019, the Van Cleef & Arpels boutique at 20, Place Vendôme will hold an exhibition in the Galerie du Patrimoine entitled “The clip, a stylish and elegant piece.” Fiftyfour pieces from the Maison’s private collection, accompanied by documents from the archives, will celebrate Van Cleef & Arpels’ beloved clip. A jewelry piece in its own right, it embodies the Maison’s vision of femininity, timeless style and refinement.


The exhibition brings together a multitude of motifs, shapes and color combinations typical of the years from 1920 to 2000, reflecting the privileged position this form of jewelry holds in the history of Van Cleef & Arpels. Ears of wheat, leaves, chrysanthemums, thistles, feathers and flames, perfect circles, lace bows, foxes, lions and playful fledglings, as well as charming ballerinas and fairies, may be worn on a hat, belt, pinned to the lapel of a jacket, dress, shoulder or on a neckline as desired.
