“To be lucky, you have to believe in luck’’, as Jacques Arpels – Estelle Arpels’ nephew – liked to say. Ever cherished by the Maison, luck is a value that has often guided its footsteps and inspired some of its most emblematic creations.
The first Alhambra long necklace was created in 1968, blending yellow gold with the pure lines of Alhambra motifs. This symbol of harmony, edged with beads of gold, was an immediate success – establishing itself as a distinctive lucky emblem of Van Cleef & Arpels.
The collection has constantly renewed itself over the years, taking on exquisite variations of forms, motif sizes and materials. In keeping with the Maison’s tradition of excellence, the Alhambra collection reflects all its High Jewelry expertise. From the choice of materials through to the final polishing, traditional skills come together to create an iconic piece that will stand the test of time.
Celebrate love this Valentine’s Day with precious creations from Van Cleef & Arpels’ Alhambra collection
