Inimitable jewelers Van Cleef & Arpels invite the world to take a leisurely stroll with them through Paris, beginning at dawn in the Jardin des Tuileries and ending at dusk at the Place Vendome.
In a magnificent paean to their birthplace, the brand unveiled a new poetic watch and a superlative jewelry collection. Aside from the above locations, the muses for the brand range from the Ile de la Cite and Notre Dame, through the Avenue Montaigne, to the Eiffel Tower and the Opera.
These scenes appear in turn from behind the mother-of-pearl dial and follow the order, from dawn to dusk and back again. Aside from the watch, the brand organized a lovely evening in Singapore at the National Museum for the local glitterati.
For the jewelry collection, there are some 80 pieces in all and there is a surfeit of wonders dedicated to Van Cleef & Arpel’s muses.
Standout pieces appearing in Singapore include the Rendez-vous ring (leaf configuration, in white gold with round diamonds, yellow sapphires, yellow and orange Mandarin garnets and Tsavorite garnets), Fil de l’eau pendant (white gold with round diamonds blue sapphire flowers) and the Eiffel necklace (yellow gold with yellow round diamonds and white gold with baguette-cut diamonds).
The daring Zip Paris necklace (which is a functional zipper) and the Cravates Fleurs and Montaigne (both of which feature detachable ties that can be worn as bracelets).
