Van Cleef & Arpels was born in 1906 in Place Vendôme, Paris from a love story between Alfred Van Cleef, the son of a diamond merchant, and Esther (known as Estelle) Arpels, the daughter of a jeweller. For over 100 years, Van Cleef & Arpels has approached High Jewellery as a form of art. In pursuit of perfection and unyielding excellence, our gemmologists select only the purest, most exceptional stones. The incredible Mystery Setting technique inspires our designs and enhances our stones. The excellence of our jewellers produces a range of ingenious, convertible jewellery.
