Throw a festive fête of vintage proportions with the Van Cleef & Arpels Alhambra and Rose de Noël collections
Charmed for Christmas
The holidays are all about about tinsel and throwbacks, and Van Cleef & Arpels is taking up the reins of this year-end theme with stylish gusto by rolling out fresh additions to the Alhambra and Rose de Noël collections. Two beloved series that embody the savoir-faire of the festivities to enchanting effect, these new creations take after the vintage refinement of the maison's earlier Perlée launch, crafted of magic and old world charm. Underlined by a floral leitmotif juxtaposed with a classic timelessness, these are the perfect jewellery pieces to be seen swanning around in for all the Christmas soirees and cocktails lined up in your social datebook.
Whether you're a (last minute) luxe gift-seeker or a sophisticate rooting around for some inspired vintage elegance, the new Alhambra and Rose de Noël series are the top-drawer picks for that touch of glitz and glam:
Appropriately festive in hues of green and gold, the Alhambra is the fine jewellery equivalent of a merry garland of lucky clovers, cut from malachite and diamonds. Backed by a colourful history dating from the swinging sixties, the collection retains its classic nuances in the new additions that include a complete parure with a necklace, pendant and earrings. Lending an additional element of lush vitality due to its verdant polish and yellow gold setting, the Vintage Alhambra can also be worn in layered multiples for a truly merry ensemble.
Rose de Noël
A statement-making entrance doesn't get more captivating than being draped in the floral creations from the Rose de Noël collection. An expansion of a house icon from the 70s', deep black onyx, orange-red carnelian and intense lapis lazuli take the spotlight with the new pendants, earrings and clips. Carved with a three-dimensional aesthetic and asymmetrically arranged, a sensational bloom takes form to rest against the skin for a surreal, voluminous look. Centred by a pistil created from six round diamonds woven through with golden threads, the alluring petals are exactly the splendidly-appointed pieces you'd want to festoon your person with.
The new Alhambra and Rose de Noël additions are available at the Van Cleef & Arpels boutique.
