It began in mid-November and will continue through the remainder of the season as the Maison unveiled a wintery wonderland. Adding ease to your holiday shopping experience, the Diamond Breeze theme is interactive on the website, allowing users to peruse the striking white pieces with interactive videos and festive melodies.
Three collections: the Lotus, the Snowflake and the À Cheval all are ornamented in white diamonds and white gold or platinum to continue the wintery all-white theme. These precious metals accent the gems to enhance their sparkling brilliance. Evoking the Art Deco style of the 50s and 60s these pieces are truly timeless.
The Lotus pendant comes in three sizes; two of the larger pendants also can be worn as clips — in true Van Cleef & Arpels fashion. The Lotus pendant blooms in 3-D. The petals are set with stunning round diamonds using a variety of setting techniques.
The Snowflake collection is inspired by the crystalline flurries that fall this time of year. Six pieces, a pendant, a necklace, a bracelet, earrings and two rings, a bandeau and a double-flower, are all set with round diamonds. Just as delicate as snowflakes as they gently fall from the sky, these graceful pieces add just the right touch of glitter.
The À Cheval collection evokes pure winter glamour. Meaning “on both sides” the À Cheval name comes from the technique used in creating the pieces — it originated in 1981. It once again is present in four superb forms: a necklace, bracelet, earrings and, new to the 2015 version of the collection, a High Jewelry watch.
