Luminous combination of materials
Ever since 1968, the Alhambra collection – a true Van Cleef & Arpels icon – has taken on a variety of elegant guises, with a rich palette of materials. This year, the Maison is bringing a touch of luck to the holiday season with this new limited edition. The Vintage Alhambra pendant is adorned with malachite, whose unique color and enchanting overtones first graced the Alhambra collection in the 1970s.

With its deep green hue, streaked with alternately light and dark veins, this noble stone evokes the vitality of nature. Once employed as a talisman, it was thought to protect children and travellers.

The malachite used by Van Cleef & Arpels meets the very highest standards of quality. Mainly originating in Australia, it is distinguished by the homogeneity and regularity of its bands. For this piece, it has been associated with yellow gold and a diamond at the jewel’s center, which elegantly illuminate the neckline.

A jewel to personalize
To emphasize the exclusive nature of this limited edition, the back of each pendant can be personalized with an engraving. The timeless Alhambra motif thus becomes the reflection of a personal story or a precious moment. Inscribed with a name, a date or a message, the jewel becomes unique for all eternity.

Alhambra, icon of luck since 1968
‘‘To be lucky, you have to believe in luck,’’ as Jacques Arpels – Estelle Arpels’ nephew – liked to say.

Luck is a quality that the Maison holds dear, guiding its footsteps and inspiring some of its most emblematic creations. The first Alhambra long necklace was born in 1968, coupling yellow gold with the pure lines of the Alhambra motif. A symbol of harmony edged with golden pearls, it was an immediate success, establishing itself as a token of luck and emblem of Van Cleef & Arpels.

In keeping with the Maison’s tradition of excellence, the Alhambra collection embodies all the expertise of the craft of High Jewelry. The varied skills of lapidaries, jewelers, stone-setters and polishers have come together to create an iconic jewel that will stand the test of time.
