Van Cleef & Arpels Refinement and lightness
Van Cleef & Arpels Refinement and lightness Esthetic models and incredibly rich in symbolism, insects – and particularly the butterfly – are beloved of jewelers who endeavor to use their technical skills to pay tribute to them. Van Cleef & Arpels recently unveiled a spring-like version of its Deux Papillons collection. Combining freshness and brilliance, these graceful motifs, encrusted with dazzling green tsavorite garnets, seem to flutter from your hand to your ears. This bucolic pair of elegant earrings consists of two winged creatures, one in white gold and diamonds, the other in yellow gold and tsavorite garnets. This ethereal duo is also featured on the Entre les Doigts™ ring, where the reversed butterflies tenderly converse. Lines and colors echo each other, bringing to the fore one aspect of the designer’s iconic esthetic: asymmetry. The highly original pendant features a subtly tilted butterfly chasing a sparkling diamond.
