With its beginnings outfitting the royalty of Egypt, Iran and England, Van Cleef & Arpels have spent more than a century perfecting the art of the emerald, insisting on only the finest quality and character within every piece of jewelry they produce. Their newest Émeraude en Majesté collection has taken over ten years to assemble; A reflection of three generations of High Jewelry expertise and skill. Every emerald carefully chosen by Van Cleef & Arpels is only of the deepest hue, most balanced purity and consistent shine.
This collection is full of gorgeous, undulating lines, abstract motifs and associations of color to magnify every emerald in all of its nuances and cuts. Inspired by classical French and ornamental Indian traditions, this collection seeks to combine freedom and precision, poetry and structure, and all things characteristic of both nature and couture.
Each piece within the collection is versatile and easily catered to your unique personality and style. The Grand Opus set provides a touch of simplicity among luxury. A diamond ribbon necklace with detachable emerald clips can be moved from the necklace to the accompanying pendant or pearl earrings. The Drapé Majestueux necklace presents an intense sparkle while resting tastefully on the collar—allowing it to be reversed and worn on either side. The Claudine necklace provides the opulence of a statement necklace with a detachable motif on the front—allowing the largest set emerald to be worn as a clip.
With all of this variety, Van Cleef & Arpels’ Émeraude en Majesté collection provides memorable pieces for every style, as well as a historic touch of couture and luxury that you will not find anywhere else. What will you do with yours? Any piece can become a gift, precious heirloom or a tradition passed down through generations that can begin with your special day.
