Van Cleef & Arpels’s Quatre Contes de Grimm High Jewelry collection

The world of Van Cleef & Arpels has always been a place of wonder, imbued with poetry and dreams. The Maison’s new High Jewelry collection once again evokes this beguiling atmosphere by reinterpreting four tales by the Brothers Grimm: The Twelve Dancing Princesses, The Golden Bird, The Three Feathers and Town Musicians of Bremen.

The collection unfolds; the wondrous animals that inhabit these tales come to life: a bird illustrates the wonder of the goldsmith’s art; finely chiseled foliage – studded with diamonds – pivots to unveil a jeweled surprise, while a feather reveals the magnificence of the Vitrail Mystery Set™, an unobtrusive showcase for the radiance of precious stones.
