“To be lucky, you have to believe in luck,” were the words Jacques Arpels, nephew of Estelle Arpels, used to say – and this quote could not be closer to the maison’s values. The ‘Alhambra’ collection – the most iconic by Van Cleef & Arpels – dates back to 1968, yet exudes timeless elegance, exquisite craftsmanship, and high-jewelry savoir faire to this day.
The pieces are designed around the lucky-charm motif – the symbol of luck, love, health, and fortune. These pillars are relatable worldwide, contributing to the immense success of the ‘Alhambra’ collection, which is now part of jewelry history and instantly recognizable across the globe. Van Cleef & Arpels has just introduced five new pieces for ‘Vintage Alhambra’ and ‘Magic Alhambra’, creations set with malachite (the green gemstone with light- and dark-colored striations) and diamonds.
The covetable new necklace, long necklace, pendant, bracelet, and between-the-finger ring are as luxurious as good-luck charms can get. Take a first look in Savoir Flair’s gallery below, then head to your nearest Van Cleef & Arpels boutique to see the magic up close.
