If you have a favorite animal that already appears in your choice of stationery, the pajamas you love, and the knickknacks around your house, there’s a beautiful new way to pay tribute to it – with a little help from Van Cleef & Arpels. The French luxury maison has launched a ‘L’Arche de Noé Racontée par Van Cleef & Arpels’ collection, a line of exquisite, fine-jewelry pieces inspired by the legend of Noah’s Ark.
Paying homage to the richness of nature, over 60 animal duos form the new collection alongside imaginary creatures in the ‘Mystery Set’, namely a pegasus, a phoenix, and a unicorn. Gorgeous silhouettes and colors characterize the pins, while carefully selected hard stones are offset by diamonds and other precious gems. The lighthearted collection simultaneously revives the house’s animal-inspired pieces and showcases its immaculate craftsmanship and attention to detail.
If we had to choose just one, it would probably be the pin that glows with a myriad of colors and features two adorable squirrels on a white-opal cabochon – but every single creation is utterly breathtaking in its own unique way. See 19 of the pins from Van Cleef & Arpels’ new launch in the gallery below.
