This Palais de la chance collection is inspired by symbols from various cultures. These creations are all expressions of luck, and their appeal and meaning are universal. Travelling between the heavens and earth and crossing the continents, the Maison has fed its imagination with tales and motifs of which it offers a jewelry interpretation through three worlds: your lucky star, lucky-charms nature and lucky legends.

Thanks to this High Jewelry collection, Van Cleef & Arpels expresses the quintessence of its style and craftsmanship. To the dazzling Pierres de Caractère (Stones of Character) selected by the jeweler according to the strictest of quality criteria, are added the technical prowess achieved by the Mains d’Or at its workshops. The Mystery Setting, the Zip necklace that may be transformed into a bracelet, and the Théâtres Poétiques, narrative, playful pieces fitted with jewelry mechanisms; once again testify to the Maison’s creativity and ability to innovate.
