Van Cleef & Arpels’ Perlée Collection Is Their Most Versatile One Yet

Not all that glitters is gold.

But for Van Cleef & Arpels’ Perlée Collection, the harmony of glittering gold and the softness of golden beads prove the phrase wrong. This collection features jewels in white gold and pink gold to be mixed and matched at will, giving rise to delicate creations that can be combined to suit every mood. For the first time ever, the Maison releases long necklaces and watches to join the quintessential rings, pendants and earrings.

The Shape-Shifting Long Necklace

On a delicate long chain in yellow gold, a pendant made up of three different-sized rings showcases the collection’s iconic golden beads. Each bead is meticulously strung together by hand to bring out their distinctive shimmer.

Perlée Couleurs Transformable Long Necklace – Yellow Gold

The long necklace embodies the playful spirit remarkably as it boasts a transformable feature that allows for its style to be changed at will. The central ring can be removed and replaced by one of three other circles adorned with beads of turquoise, coral or onyx, making it wearable for every occasion. Each bead was shaped and polished by hand before being strung on a thread of gold.

Joyful Cabochons

Cabochons feature as the centre-piece for the three jewellery sets making their debut in the Perlée couleurs collection – earrings, a pendant and a ring. The dazzling cabochons come in 3 brilliant colours. Each cabochon, all the same dimensions, are outlined by a border of fine golden beads, placing emphasis on its spherical nature.

Precious Ribbons

Refined elegance is emulated in the Perlée diamonds collection. A row of diamonds surrounded by two rows of golden beads, sparkle in accordance to the movement of the hand. These rings may be worn as a pair, trio, or combined with the delicate Perlée bracelet.

Secret Watches

Peek-a-boo! Van Cleef & Arpels unveil a new design of secret watches disguised a bracelet or a pendant. The bracelets were inspired by the “toi et moi” jewellery style whereby two different-sized motifs sit side opposite one another on an open bangle. The larger of the two delicately pivots to reveal an elegant white mother-of-pearl dial surrounded by a border of round diamonds.

Reminiscent of European watches from the 17th century, the last creation takes the form of a pendant in rose gold set with diamonds. By sliding the paved surface to reveal the dial, the hour can be read with discretion.
