Noah’s Ark and Van Cleef and Arpels art of storytelling

Until September 26th, enter in Van Cleef and Arpels jewel box at Hotel d’Evreux on Place Vendôme. Robert Wilson stages the legendary story of the animals saved from the Flood, inspiration of Noah’s Ark collection, through a multisensorial experience of music and light. The sixty couples of animals are depicted in a way which enhances their preciousness and beauty. It is in line with the tradition of interpretating animal figures that has existed at Van Cleef and Arpels since the creation of the clip Papillon in 1920. The three mythical creatures of the collection employ the Mystery Set (Serti Mystérieux), a technique patented in 1933, which enables stone settings with no visible metals. Admire Pegase clip in coral and diamonds made in this traditional technique.
