Van Cleef & Arpels has unveiled its high jewellery collection titled Le Grand Tour, which pays homage to the tradition of the Grand Tour, offering a contemporary interpretation of the journey that shaped the minds and aesthetics of generations past.
The Grand Tour, popularized during the 18th and 19th centuries, was a transformative expedition undertaken by young aristocrats seeking to complete their education and expand their horizons.

The Le Grand Tour High Jewellery Collection tells a story of exploration and discovery, blending the Maison's unparalleled creativity, exceptional craftsmanship, and exquisite gemstones. Each piece is meticulously crafted to resemble travel sketches, inviting admirers to embark on a visual and emotional journey.
