Not only are Van Cleef & Arpels’ exquisite Snowflake pieces on the cover of our Winter Issue, but the historic French jewellery Maison has just opened the doors to its first New Zealand store — making its romantic designs and incomparable jewels readily available to us for the first time.
In anticipation of this recent opening, and as a way of celebrating the craftsmanship of this iconic brand, we photographed a selection of pieces from Van Cleef & Arpels’ high jewellery lines as part of our new issue cover shoot.
Paired perfectly with ready-to-wear by some of our favourite brands (from Dior to Louis Vuitton) these Van Cleef & Arpels pieces are utterly showstopping. You only have to peruse the images below to understand this Maison’s uniquely creative take on high jewellery.
Balancing the delicate with the dazzling and weaving precious stones into impossibly intricate designs, Van Cleef & Arpels has always been ahead of the game and looking at these images, it’s easy to see why.
