The 70's of Van Cleef & Arpels

In its heritage gallery, Van Cleef & Arpels has drawn together 70 pieces from those extremely creative years, the seventies. The desire for new horizons, colors and rusticity are reflected in a coral brooch set with amethysts and emeralds, and in a medallion with an Indian inspiration. Obviously the “Alhambra” necklace is there too: this long necklace punctuated with quadrilobe flowers in colored gemstones has indeed become the emblematic piece of that decade.

Until March 1st 2017 – Salon Patrimoine – 20, place Vendôme 75001 Paris.
