Van Cleef & Arpels Vintage Alhambra 10 Motif Mother of Pearl Necklace

The Van Cleef & Arpels jewellery house is one of the most renowned and prestigious jewellery brands in the world. The company started off as a small family business, but quickly grew into a luxury jewellery brand with stores all over the globe. The story of Van Cleef & Arpels began in the early 1900s when Estelle Arpel’s (the daughter gemstone specialist) married young Alfred Van Cleef. A year later they opened up their own business with help from family, combining two passions: jewels and precious stones; talent inspired by courage which is what made them one-of -a kind till this day! The company quickly gained a reputation for its high-quality jewellery, and soon began to attract customers from all over the world.

A decade later, in 1906, Alfred Van Cleef and Charles Arpels opened the Maison de Van Cleef & Arpels jewellery store in Place Vendome. A legend was born, and soon this name came to mean luxury, refinement, and elegance. From the very beginning, Van Cleef & Arpels has targeted celebrities and exclusive clients. It didn’t take long for store locations to open in resorts such as Monte Carlo – where they quickly proved themselves a success!

Also in 1906, Van Cleef & Arpels also opened its first boutique outside of France, in Moscow, Russia. This was followed by stores in London (1909), New York (1913), Geneva (1920), and many other cities around the world. The company became known for its innovative designs, and was responsible for several important jewellery inventions, such as the mystery setting (a way to set diamonds without using metal claws) and the zip necklace (a necklace that opens and closes like a zipper).

Van Cleef & Arpels has been owned by several different companies over the years. It was first acquired by Condé Nast in 1971, then sold to Piaget SA in 1974. In 1999, it was bought by LVMH (Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton), one of the largest luxury conglomerates in the world. Today, Van Cleef & Arpels is one of the most prestigious jewellery brands in the world, with boutiques in some of the most exclusive shopping districts around the globe.
