Van Cleef & Arpels

The legacy of French jewellery, watch and fragrance company Van Cleef & Arpels stands on more than 100 years of tradition. The brand’s signature motifs, often featuring flowers and animals, have attracted such luminaries as Elizabeth Taylor, and the proprietary “mystery setting” technique of gem placement has added to the broader mystique of Van Cleef & Arpeels. Today owned by Richemont, the brand operates standalone boutiques across the world, including its flagship at 20, Place Vendôme in Paris. Its jewellery – its high jewellery and watches, in particular – features exquisite craftsmanship and design.
