Van Cleef & Arpels

Worn by famous style icons such as Farah Pahlavi, the Duchess of Windsor, Grace Kelly, Elizabeth Taylor, and Eva Perón, Van Cleef & Arpels is a French luxury jewellery, watch, and perfume company, founded in 1896 by Alfred Van Cleef and his father-in-law Salomon Arpels in Paris. Their pieces often feature flowers, animals, and fairies. In 1954, Van Cleef & Arpels re-imagined high fashion jewellery by creating La Boutique, a unique place that offered a modern, daywear line of jewels. Among them were clips featuring charming animals. Whether puckish or mischievous, they introduced a lively note to jewellery in Place Vendôme. Van Cleef & Arpels revisits one of its most treasured themes in the Two Butterfly jewellery collection. These dazzling pieces combine colour and asymmetry to reinterpret the grace and beauty of butterflies in flight. The two Butterfly Between the Finger ring, yellow gold, has a round tsavorite garnet, with white gold, and round and marquise-cut diamonds.
