The Alhambra collection introduces four long necklaces, which reinterpret the emblematic lucky motif in materials teeming with life
This year, the Alhambra collection welcomes four long necklaces, which reinterpret the emblematic lucky motif in materials teeming with life. The creations are accompanied by a ring in guilloché yellow gold and a watch, expressing the timeless elegance of this icon of Van Cleef & Arpels.
Four new Magic Alhambra long necklaces are taking their places in the collection. Recognised by their generous motif s, these creations are embellished with noble materials suffused with life. Chalcedony combines its bluish hues to the sheen of white gold, while grey mother-of-pearl coordinates its iridescent overtones with rose gold, in a delicate assortment of warm tones.
On the third piece, the maison brings together blue agate, which first appeared in the collection in 1989, with yellow gold. With its colours, the creation evokes the softness of the blue glow of twilight.
On the Magic Alhambra long necklace in guilloché yellow gold, interplays of dazzling lines captivate the gaze with their solar reflections. Thanks to Van Cleef & Arpels’ expertise, the depth of the striations and their sun-shaped pattern bring a subtle relief effect to the surface, creating an intense circulation of light. A new Vintage Alhambra ring in yellow gold matches the long necklace adorning the hand with its radiance.
These creations are faithful to the tradition of transformable pieces, perpetuated by the maison since its foundation. Each piece can be worn in different ways: as a long or semi-long necklace, or as a short one by doubling the chain. The creations can be wrapped around the wrist as bracelets or draped down the back, to suit any mood.
