Characteristics of Van Cleef & Arpels
In 1895, Estelle Arpels and Alfred Van Cleef sealed their love with marriage, and that wonderful day was the foundation for a legacy of elegance that would become an arbiter of global aesthetics and haute joaillerie. Working exclusively with the highest quality metals, diamonds, and colored gemstones, Van Cleef & Arpels creates designs that blend a gentle sense of whimsey inspired by the natural world with fashion worthy of a Milanese runway. Here in the heart of Las Vegas, we’re proud to offer this French designer’s most artistic looks to both locals and guests from the furthest corners of the globe.
Van Cleef & Arpels High Jewelry Watches
No less an horologist than a jeweler, the Van Cleef & Arpels atelier has been designing incomparable watches since their earliest days. When a discriminating watch lover browses the Poetic Complications collection, for example, it’s not difficult to see the aesthetic inspiration that Van Cleef & Arpels works into the pieces. Delicately painted enamel dials tell stories decorated with mother of pearl inlays and over a hundred diamonds. The Alhambra collection, named for the Moorish palace, is distinguished by tessellated quatrefoils whose onyx or mother of pearl dials blend with delightful gold beading and the serti neige diamonds that fit well against the luminous cases.
Van Cleef & Arpels High Jewelry
Of course, it would be an oversight to ignore the high fashion jewelry sculpted by the Van Clef & Arpels artisans. The Alhambra collection, one of the designer’s signature collections, is well represented here, but the quatrefoil design of the collection forms a delightful complement to the Frivole collection. Flowers and little bouquets sculpted from 18k gold, these pieces blossom between fingers and against a woman’s throat, their delicate polished petals cradling pistils made from glittering white diamonds. The same gold beads that made the Alhambra watches so distinguished encrust the surface of Perlée bracelets, the interrupted flow of light creating jewelry made to catch eyes and turn heads.
