Van Cleef & Arpels’ poetry on Valentine’s Day

Van Cleef & Arpels celebrates Valentine’s Day with an enchanting selection of its most iconic creations.

Launched in 1968, Van Cleef & Arpels’ iconic Alhambra motif rapidly becomes an emblem of the Maison. For over four decades, women have loved the enchanting contours of this lucky-charm motif. It is a potent symbol of luck, health, fortune, and love.

Born as a long, plain yellow gold necklace, the Alhambra collection keeps displaying its timeless elegance.


Another emblematic creation of Van Cleef is its Perlée Collection. Influenced by several elements from Van Cleef & Arpels’ rich heritage, the Perlée Collection is elegant and modern. Van Cleef & Arpels unveils with Perlée a certain boldness and offers a light and playful collection with jewels in white gold and pink gold to be mixed and matched at will.


With the Two butterfly Between the Finger Ring the Maison revisits a favorite theme, with a dazzling piece which reinterprets the grace and beauty of butterflies in flight. Two whimsical butterflies offer a striking contrast for this enchanting ring combining diamond-set white gold and pink sapphire-set pink gold.

Finally, the Maison enchants us with a high jewellery ring from the Peau d’Âne Collection, the Promesse d’Amour ring. This creation evokes the love bond between the Prince and Peau d’Âne, in a sophisticated combination of blue and pink sapphires. The two colours, blue and pink, not only represent the two kingdom, but they also stand for fidelity and love.
