Revival couture

In its Bouton d’or collection, Van Cleef & Arpels resurrects the sequins created in the late 1930s. Reinterpreted as concave and convex disks in mother-of-pearl, onyx, chrysoprase or carnelian each with a central diamond, this motif recalls haute couture, one of the major themes of the house.
