Van Cleef & Arpels
High Jewellery from the Place Vendôme since 1906
Founded at Paris’ 22 Place Vendôme in 1906, Van Cleef & Arpels came into being following Estelle Arpels’ marriage to Alfred Van Cleef in 1895. Over the decades, the excellence and creativity of the High Jewellery Maison established its reputation across the world.
With a blend of inventiveness and poetry, Van Cleef & Arpels perpetuates a highly distinctive style that has produced numerous signatures: the Mystery Set technique, the Minaudière, the transformable Zip necklace and the Alhambra motif.
Its selection of Pierres de Caractère, exceptional gems that instil an emotion, and the savoir-faire of its Mains d’Or, the virtuoso craftsmen of the workshops, have given birth to enchanting jewellery and watchmaking collections. Inspired by nature, couture, dance, imaginary worlds and beyond, the Maison opens the gate to a timeless universe of beauty and harmony.
