In 1968, ‘Haute Joaillerie’ Maison Van Cleef & Arpels introduced a clover-shaped charm that quickly became a signature design of the French Maison. A symbol that represents luck, health, fortune and love, the design has increased in popularity amongst celebrity clients – who would often layer several Alhambra necklaces of different sizes and with different gemstone combinations for the quintessential daytime look.
Van Cleef & Arpels’ Alhambra creations are distinguished by their unique, timeless elegance. Inspired by the clover leaf, these icons of luck are adorned with a border of golden beads.
During its 51-year history, Van Cleef & Arpels’ Alhambra collection has continuously been refreshed and refined (making it one of the maison’s most collectable fine jewellery motifs) every now and then, especially during the holidays.
For this season, the Maison is celebrating the holiday season with a limited-edition Vintage Alhambra pendant. Continuing its partnership with the illustrious Manufacture nationale de Sèvres, Celestial Blue Sèvres porcelain, diamond and yellow gold come together in harmony for this year’s exclusive pendant, imbuing the symbol of luck with exquisite craftsmanship. Due to the traditional production process, the Celestial Blue color can vary slightly from one piece to the next, giving the creation an exclusive character.
