Ever since 1968, Van Cleef & Arpels’ Alhambra collection has taken on a variety of elegant guises, with a rich palette of materials. This year, Van Cleef & Arpels is bringing a touch of luck to the holiday season with this new, luminous and refined limited edition. First appeared in the Alhambra collection in 2001, the grey mother-of-pearl now lends its enchanting color and shimmering glow to this vintage Alhambra pendant.
Organically produced from sea shells, mother-of-pearl is remarkable for its iridescent shades and ever-changing colors. With its pearly sheen it evokes femininity, gentleness and protection. The grey mother-of-pearl used by Van Cleef & Arpels meets the very highest standards of quality. Mainly originating from Indonesia and Japan, it is distinguished by its uniform shades, smooth surface and the highest quality sheen. For this piece, it has been associated with pink gold and a diamond at the jewel’s center, which elegantly illuminate the neckline.
To emphasize the exclusive nature of this limited edition, the back of each pendant can be personalized with an engraving. The timeless Alhambra motif thus becomes the reflection of a personal story or a precious moment. Inscribed with a name, a date or a message, the jewel becomes unique for all eternity.
