Magic Alhambra long necklace 16 motifs



Used in jewelry-making since Antiquity, carnelian is a reddishorange variety of chalcedony. Collections such as Bouton d’or® and Alhambra® feature carnelian in delicate harmonies of color, set off by pink or yellow gold. The stone also adorns the Maison’s High Jewelry creations, imbuing them with a radiant vibrancy.

Prized for millennia in Crete, Central Asia and the Far East, carnelian has inspired myriad beliefs and legends. Ancient Egyptians saw the stone as a symbol of life, endowed with the power to facilitate the soul’s journey to the next world.

With its warm nuances, carnelian also denotes joy and happiness. Van Cleef & Arpels mainly uses Brazilian carnelian in its creations, a variety of stones remarkable for their translucency and their deep, uniform color, as well as their gleam. Lapidaries often strive to harmonize the colors of carnelian gems; each expert has his or her own techniques to achieve the perfect hue.

To protect the stones from damage or scratching, the Maison recommends storing carnelian pieces in a fabric-lined box separate from other jewelry.


A stone of the quartz family, tiger’s eye exhibits alternating layers of lustrous yellow and brown waves reminiscent of a feline eye. Among the Maison’s collections, selected Alhambra® creations give prominence to its characteristic iridescence and chatoyant effect, brought to life in the iconic Van Cleef & Arpels clover motif.

Renowned since Antiquity as a symbol of protection for warriors, tiger’s eye was also called “all-seeing eye.” Ancient Romans saw it as a sign of physical and spiritual well-being.

Van Cleef & Arpels selects stones imbued with a harmonious blend of light and dark bands, as well as straight, uniform lines.

To protect these stones from damage or scratching, the Maison recommends storing tiger’s eye pieces in a dry fabric-lined box separate from other jewelry and avoiding contact with cosmetic products.
