STONES

DIAMONDS

A stone of extraordinary brilliance, the diamond takes its name from the Greek adamas, meaning “indomitable,” a fitting descriptor to express this mineral’s exceptional properties. Van Cleef & Arpels lavishes all its expertise and High Jewelry savoir-faire on this remarkable stone, to produce dazzling jewelry creations including solitaires, as well as the Snowflake and À Cheval collections. Diamonds also embellish many of the Maison’s timepieces, such as those of the Cadenas® collection.

A pure carbon crystal, the diamond has wielded its tantalizing charm in various eras and civilizations, thanks to both its qualities of resistance (the diamond is the hardest of all precious stones) and the way it reflects light. In Tibet, it was said to lead the way to the path of truth. In the Hindu tradition, diamonds captured the light of the sun. Ancient Greeks considered these stones to be tears of the gods, while the Romans saw them as fragments of stars.

Perceived over the ages as a symbol of heroism or a lucky charm ensuring peace and good health, this precious stone denotes protection, purity and immortality. As a gift to a loved one, it bespeaks the power of emotions.

MOTHER-OF-PEARL

A material dear to the Maison, mother-of-pearl is produced naturally in certain shells. It illuminates jewelry creations with its glistening reflections, imparting a spirit of femininity, softness and protection. Particularly prominent in the Alhambra®, Deux Papillons and Rose de Noël™ jewelry collections, mother-of-pearl also adorns Van Cleef & Arpels timepieces.

For white mother-of-pearl, the Maison looks primarily toward Australia, which produces a variety renowned for its even surfaces and subtle iridescence. Australia also provides the Maison’s gold mother-of-pearl, selected for its warm hue, satiny surface and lustrous overtone. Finally, gray mother-of-pearl, known for its harmonious gray-silver tones and captivating glow, comes from French Polynesia.

To ensure proper upkeep of its creations, the Maison recommends cleaning mother-of-pearl with pure water or a soft, dry cloth. Contact with cosmetic products should be avoided. Mother-of-pearl is a delicate material that must be stored in a box lined with cotton fabric.
