Paris When It Sparkles

1 minute read
Camille Agon

To celebrate its centenary, Parisian jeweler Van Cleef & Arpels has designed an exquisite collection, Une Journée à Paris. The house—founded in 1906 by Alfred van Cleef, son of a diamond merchant, and his brother-in-law Charles Arpels, son of a precious-stones wholesaler—has long been a favorite of celebrities like Marlene Dietrich, Princess Grace and Uma Thurman. This new line was inspired by landmarks in the City of Light, including the Tuileries, Notre Dame and the Eiffel Tower. The Etincelles minaudière, left, in white gold with onyx and diamonds, pays homage to the elegant parties held in the jeweler’s hôtel particulier on the Place Vendôme.
