About Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry

Van Cleef & Arpels was founded in 1906, following the marriage of Estelle Arpels, the daughter of a precious stones dealer, and Alfred Van Cleef, the son of a gemstone cutter. Their passion for precious stones resulted in an iconic brand that has been celebrated for over a century for their craftsmanship, organic designs and bold choice of gemstones. With innovations such as the mystery setting, the transformative zip necklace as well as the iconic Alhambra collection, it’s no wonder Van Cleef & Arpels has long been the brand of choice of many royals and celebrities, including Queen Sophia of Spain, Elizabeth Taylor and Mariah Carey.
