It’s no secret; the jewellery pieces from Van Cleef & Arpels love nothing more than adorning the ear lobes, necks and fingers of the famous and glamorous (such as Dita Von Teese, Blake Lively and Coco Rocha just to name a few).
Founded in in 1906, the fine jeweller has won over fans around the world with its splendid designs and we’re no exception.
That’s why the storied French luxury brand stays as one of our go-tos when we think of jewelleries that are worth investing in (oh, how we love their iconic Alhambra pieces with the instantly recognisable clover motifs!).
Speaking of its collections, Van Cleef & Arpels’s Perlee range — which is famous for its golden beads — deserves a mention.
The accessories here have long been designed with an air of playfulness in mind so that they can create an uplifting spirit for their wearers, and inject a dose of fun into their daily outfits.
Now, the luxury label is introducing new additions to this Perlee range (hooray!). A set of Perlee pearls of gold bracelet and ring in yellow gold has been made even more striking, thanks to the multiple rows of shining beads on their exteriors.
What’s interesting about these two additions is that the beads have been painstakingly polished individually. This means that when natural light falls on them, they’ll become impossible to miss on your wrist or fingers.
And since they’re so attention-grabbing, you’ll want to be wary of them (they’re likely to steal your thunder at office parties or weekend brunches). For the easily jealous, stay away. For the rest of us, wear them and get ready to share some of the limelight.
