Which would you choose: mirror polish or diamond pavée?
Van Cleef & Arpels announced the opening of an exclusive brand-new boutique at Harrods, the luxury department store in London. Inspired by an elegant Art Deco Parisian apartment, the intimate salon recalls the femininity of the fine jewellery maison’s creations. Decorated with a bloom of graphic flowers and an exhibition of precious flower clips, the enchanted space is the perfect place to discover a selection of new love-forever creations like the new Frivole transformable jewels.
The Frivole motif lends itsfelf to a play of metamorphosis to become a clip or a pendant.
“Like so many flowers dancing in the breeze, the Frivole creations by Van Cleef & Arpels stand out with their graphic and airy aesthetic. Mirror-polished gold bestows a singular radiance upon heart-shaped petals,” says the luxury house.
New three-flower Frivole earrings offer a radiant place for the rays of light to frolic. The Frivole Between the Finger Ring is designed to be a delicate ornament for the hand.
The Mirror polishing technique has been in use at the Maison since the 1920s. It provides a way of highlighting the glitter of gold and creating particularly intense reflections, suffusing each piece with unique vitality. For the Frivole collection, architectural forms and the orientation of the petals have been worked with care to reproduce the random quality of nature.
