Last week, I attended the unveiling of the new Van Cleef & Arpels boutique in Harrods’ Fine Jewellery Room, which reopened its doors after complete refurbishment. Special guest were welcomed by the lovely Van Cleef & Arpels team and, of course, greeted with sweets and beverages!

The new Harrods boutique is a brilliant extension of Van Cleef & Arpel’s flagship boutique on Bond Street with an added playful touch and elegant surroundings. I got the chance to try on a few of my favourite pieces sat in this gorgeous Parisian style salon. The great thing about this new Van Cleef & Arpels boutique is that they stock entry collection pieces as well as some astonishing high jewellery creations. I had the honour to try a few jewels from Socrate collection. A symbol of freshness and lightness, the Socrate jewellery collection enhances a delicate floral design set with diamonds. I also absolutely love their pins: they are incredible and are very Van Cleef & Arpels.

Did you know that Van Cleef employs the most stringent criteria to select the diamonds for its jewellery pieces and offers only: DEF for colour, IF to VVS2 for clarity. So no surprises and even the tiniest diamonds are of the best quality and cut, so even the minimalistic creations sparkle.
