Every year, to celebrate the coming of spring, Van Cleef & Arpels is paying a poetic tribute to nature.
In an unfurling of precious blossom, the Frivole collection is being enriched with eight luminous new creations, including a bracelet and two secret watches. The Maison’s craftsmanship has breathed life into these glittering corollas, which illuminate the skin with a precious gleam.
Bouquets of light
This year, the Frivole collection presents a new aesthetic, with two creations that associate a polished yellow gold bangle with shimmering motifs.
- Frivole 7-flower bracelet
The 7-flower bracelet evokes the vitality and diversity of nature, in a poetic combination of different-sized corollas. Mirror polishing accentuates the gleam of the precious metal, magnifying the brilliance of heart-shaped petals which unfurl around one or three diamonds.
- Frivole Secrète watch
For the first time, these sun-drenched flowers come together in the form of a secret watch. Beneath a delicately-pivoting, luminous bouquet hides a dial paved with diamonds. The jewelers’ intricate art is notably expressed in superimposed petals of polished gold, creating a three-dimensional composition. Time is revealed surrounded by spring-like blossom.
Crafted from white gold paved with diamonds, the new 5-flower bracelet can accompany the collection’s 9-flower necklace to form a set. Its different-sized motifs harmoniously embellish the wrist with sparkling diamonds.
- Frivole 5-flower bracelet
Among the new creations, a Between the Finger Ring presents a delicate tête-à-tête, in the form of a dialogue between three flowers in mirror-polished white gold and a diamond-paved flower. Reflecting the Maison’s emblematic style, the asymmetry of the piece creates a dynamic feel that echoes the vivacity of nature in spring.
- Frivole Between the Finger Ring
Van Cleef & Arpels gives pride of place to transformable creations, with two new pieces in white gold paved with diamonds: a clip pendant and a secret watch.
- Frivole clip pendant, very large model
To suit every mood, the large-format pendant can be worn on a white gold chain or as a clip on clothing – or even in the hair. enerouslysized, three sparkling petals bloom around a heart composed of three diamonds.
- Frivole Secrète watch
The Frivole motif again lends itself to a play of metamorphosis, with a bracelet-watch. A diamond-paved dial discretely reveals the time, concealed by delicately-pivoting corollas. The precious bouquet can be transformed into a pendant and worn on a chain, or mounted on a jewelry structure as a clip.
A spring-like palette
This year for the first time, rose gold and pink sapphires adorn Frivole creations in tender shades. At the center of a pair of earrings and a pendant in warm hues, a pink sapphire is lit up by diamond-set petals. In keeping with the Maison’s floral universe, this fresh, feminine aesthetic celebrates the shimmering colors of nature.
