The World Is Your Oyster
And one can find “pearls” readily in Van Cleef & Arpels Perlée collection
Jonathan Ho

Unabashedly glamorous, undeniably refined, and unmistakably feminine, the artisanship and craft for Van Cleef & Arpels has been on display, prominently displayed on wrists, draped seductively above many a décolletage, and on some of the most prominent royalty in human history. Driven by a passion for beauty and excellence, the origins of Van Cleef & Arpels can be traced back to the love story of Alfred Van Cleef and Estelle Arpels, where their union led to the establishment of the maison at 22 Place Vendôme in 1906.

Featuring some of the most memorable adornments over the last hundred years, the Van Cleef & Arpels Perlée collection is a joyful testament to the expertise in the creation of some of the most fabulous jewels and baubles of our time. Conceived in 1920, the aesthetic elements, which would eventually become the design heritage of the Perlée, laid the foundational groundwork in artisanal haute joaillerie.
