Every year, Van Cleef & Arpels gives voice to its creativity with a new limited edition of the Vintage Alhambra pendant. The Maison has renewed its partnership with the illustrious Manufacture Nationale de Sèvres, on a pendant that blends Celestial Blue porcelain with yellow gold to form a solar harmony.
The Maison has chosen the Celestial Blue – created by the Manufacture in 1752 to adorn the first dinner service ordered by King Louis XV. It today embellishes the palette of the Alhambra collection, which brings together hard stones, mother-of-pearl, and other noble materials. Much sought-after for its elegance, porcelain is produced from natural materials and pigments, then hand-dyed by the Manufacture’s craftsmen. Its soft, smooth surface offers a luster of excellent refinement.
