“Lucky Animals” by Van Cleef & Arpels

Cats, lions, hummingbirds and rabbits – the nine Van Cleef & Arpels clips form a menagerie of whimsical animals that whisk us back to our childhood and are brimming with humour. Drawn and coloured with solid splashes of hard stone, lapis lazuli, malachite and tiger’s eye, suggestive of fur, etc., they continue the tradition of the boutique collection born in the 1950s.

From €5,650.
