Maison's High Jewelry collections to this day: Lace Clip, 1945

This Lace clip features a yellow gold and platinum ribbon bow with gold lace trim adorned with diamond-set flowerheads. From the Renaissance to the 19th century, paintings often depicted the kings and queens of France adorned with jewels inspired by textiles. Since its foundation, Van Cleef & Arpels has been inspired by these accessories and the uniquely French form of elegance they represent. They continue to influence the Maison's High Jewelry collections to this day.

Among these creations, knots have long formed part of the Van Cleef & Arpels' tradition. They are a fundamental element of the world of couture and have always been used as ornamental motifs. Whether simple or elaborate, they gracefully play with effects of transparency and drape a woman in splendor. In the hands of the Van Cleef & Arpels' master-jewelers, lace becomes jewelry and jewelry becomes lace in a virtuoso trompe-l'œil effect.
