The playful Perlée collection reinforces the possibility of mixing and matching for a
gleaming composition. Perlée’s motifs, the gold pearls, convey a feminine
appearance that evokes an optimistic outlook on life.
Rose gold and pink sapphires adorn Frivole creations in tender shades. At the center
of a pair of earrings and a pendant in warm hues, a pink sapphire is lit up by
diamond-set petals. In keeping with the Maison’s floral universe, this fresh, feminine
aesthetic celebrates the shimmering colors of nature.
Craftsmanship dedicated to light
To illuminate certain creations, Van Cleef & Arpels has used the Maison’s cherished mirror-polishing technique. On each petal, this hand-polishing highlights the gleam of gold, creating intense reflections.
The brilliance of the pieces is also accentuated by openwork, whereby the jeweler pierces the gold structure to enable light to pass through the stones. These different traditional techniques combine in a homage to the beauty of nature.
For each creation, the Maison has paid close attention to stone selection. The pink sapphires that adorn the Frivole pieces have a remarkably intense color, lending a dazzling brightness to the creations. Van Cleef & Arpels’ expert gemologists have chosen diamonds that meet the strictest criteria: D to F for color and IF to VVS for clarity.
