The timeless appeal of Van Cleef and Arpels jewelry
Founded in 1906, legendary French luxury brand Van Cleef and Arpels was headed by Alfred Van Cleef, the son of a gemstone cutter and his wife Estelle Arpels, the daughter of a precious stones dealer. Their shared love of precious stones and fine jewelry formed the bedrock of this iconic brand that’s well-known for beautiful, organic jewelry designs; expert craftsmanship and unique choice of stones.
Why is Van Cleef and Arpels so popular? They’ve continually been at the forefront of innovation, particularly with the introduction of the “Mystery Setting,” a method that enables the setting of stones with no visible prongs, allowing for large swathes of rich color unbroken by metal.
Van Cleef and Arpels jewelry has been highly sought-after for over a century. It’s long been the brand of choice for celebrities and royals alike, including Elizabeth Taylor and Queen Sophia of Spain. Van Cleef and Arpels is known for reinvention and is an enduringly popular brand, and pieces by the jewelry-maker command high prices in the luxury marketplace.
