October 2014 - To accompany the holiday festivities, Van Cleef & Arpels has designed a new limited edition Vintage Alhambra® pendant.
This year’s creation features an harmonious blend of pink gold, grey mother-of-pearl and diamond.Delicate combination of materials
Ever since 1968, the Alhambra collection – a true Van Cleef & Arpels icon – has taken on a variety of elegant guises, with a rich palette of materials.
This year, the Maison is bringing a touch of luck to the holiday season with this new, luminous and refined limited edition.
Having first appeared in the Alhambra collection in 2001, the grey mother-of-pearl now lends its enchanting colour and shimmering glow to this vintage Alhambra pendant.
Organically produced from sea shells, mother-of-pearl is remarkable for its iridescent shades and ever-changing colours.
With its pearly sheen it evokes femininity, gentleness and protection.
The grey mother-of-pearl used by Van Cleef & Arpels meets the very highest standards of quality.
Mainly originating from Indonesia and Japan, it is distinguished by its uniform shades, smooth surface and the highest quality sheen.
For this piece, it has been associated with pink gold and a diamond at the jewel’s centre, which elegantly illuminate the neckline.A jewel to personalise
To emphasise the exclusive nature of this limited edition, the back of each pendant can be personalised with an engraving.
The timeless Alhambra motif thus becomes the reflection of a personal story or a precious moment.
Inscribed with a name, a date or a message, the jewel becomes unique for all eternity.
