Van Cleef & Arpels was founded in 1896 by two business men who were also to become relatives. They opened their first jewelry boutique in 1906 in Paris, Place Vendome, where all the crème de la crème of the jewelers were. The renown of the company is based upon several unique and extraordinary designs revealed along the years, as well as for the ground-breaking technique named Mystery Setting. But there is more to Van Cleef & Arpels than jewellery these days. They are also hailed as top wristwatch producers, a fine business sprinkled with the finest fragrance of refinement and high class, signed of course by their own House. In 2009 the House launched a six fragrances line called Collection Extraordinaire.
Among the House’s most ravishing pieces we find this pair of Van Cleef & Arpels Sapphire and Ruby Earrings. The jewels are adorned with lavish gemstones and set in a classical, yet timeless designed setting. The 18 karat white gold accommodates round, brilliant cut diamonds, as well as pear shaped diamonds. They pave the spiraled links between colored drops of sapphires and rubies with delicate fiery shimmers.
These remarkable Van Cleef & Arpels Sapphire and Ruby Earrings are a sight for sore eyes. They gather together the most expensive and loved precious stones of the moment in a ravishing design and combination of colors. The deep and velvety feel given away by the fancy sapphires and rubies make us dream of fairy tale kings and their crown jewels. The polishing of the pink, mauve and blue star sapphires is meant to take us into a romantic setting where femininity feels at home. Eight spots of relentlessly sought excellence, eight drops of the earth’s most beautiful gifts are here today to make our day a bit brighter.
The gorgeous Van Cleef & Arpels Sapphire and Ruby Earrings boast a staggering 48, 15 carats of mauve, blue and pink star sapphires. The sole weight of such precious and rare stones is sure to bring about a many zeroes figure. The cut, then, is also a very unusual one. If many jewelers prefer to cut these gems in different shapes that involve edges and ways of reflecting as much light as possible, the craftsmen at Van Cleef and Arpels decided to keep a silky, satin feeling to the gems. Just like the old school femininity principle were based on entertaining as much mystery as possible, and creating that delicate feeling around a woman’s presence, these earrings manage to encompass the undying refinement of a remarkable woman.
The mellow magic of the Van Cleef & Arpels Sapphire and Ruby Earrings is balanced by the passionate undertones created in the depths of the two star rubies weighing 7.32 carats. A symphony of colors, lights and sparkles, all dedicated to the eternal mystery of women.Van Cleef & Arpels Sapphire and Ruby Earrings,
