Van Cleef and Arpels, A journey in the Garden of Green
Emeralds, jade and malachite are just a few examples of gems illustrating a variation of nuances of green. From the 1930s to today, these colors were put in the spotlight thanks to the unique savoir-faire (craftsmanship) of the Maison Van Cleef & Arpels. Often associated to the plant world, these green gems contribute to the poetical genesis of floral and naturalistic jewels. The elegance of shapes and volumes of these stones render, in each of the collections, the expression of movement and timeless vitality.
