Magic Alhambra long necklace, 1 motif



Blue chalcedony, part of the microcrystalline quartz group, calls to mind harmony and serenity with its mellow nuances and translucent essence. At Van Cleef & Arpels, it features primarily in the Alhambra® collection, where it endows the Maison’s iconic four-leaf clover motifs with charm and brilliance.

The name chalcedony comes from the Greek khalkedon, referring to the city of Chalcedon in modern-day Turkey. Prized by stone carvers, it stands out for its color, ranging from gray to deep blue, as well as lavender, and sometimes exhibiting white banding.

Van Cleef & Arpels predominantly uses Namibian chalcedony in its creations, a variety unique for its intensity and its subtle gradation of hues.

To preserve its gleam, chalcedony should be stored in a fabric-lined box separate from other jewelry.
