The history of Van Cleef & Arpels began with a love story when, in 1895, Estelle Arpels, the daughter of a precious stone merchant, married Alfred Van Cleef, the son of lapidary and diamond broker. In 1906, their passion for jewellery and entrepreneurial spirit let them to go into business with Estelle’s brothers, Charles Julien and Louis, and open a boutique at 22, Place Vendome.  During the first half of century, the Maison developed new expertise and creations that would become real signature: The Mystery Setting technique, the convertible jewel Passe-Partout or the innovative  Zip necklace inspired by the zipper.


The elegance and ingenuity of the creations, but also the use of the most precious materials allowed Van Cleef & Arpels to win over royal families and personalities of the cinema. Over the decades the Maison has remained faithful to a highly distinctive style characterized by creativity, refinement and poetry. Whether inspired by nature, couture or the imagination, its creations evoke a timeless world of harmony and beauty.
