In 1968, Van Cleef & Arpels unveiled its first Alhambra long necklace. Inspired by the four-leaf clover shape, the iconic piece of jewellery for the past 50 years has been a symbol not only of luck and protection, but importantly, of ageless femininity and elegance. This year, the Maison celebrates the collection’s 50th anniversary with several unique pieces, featuring dazzling techniques and materials.

Another addition to Vintage Alhambra are the guilloché gold pieces, crafted using the Maison’s unique engraving technique. Traditionally used to adorn watch dials and powder boxes, guillochage creates a subtle relief effect, an ornamentation that causes light to dance around the piece in a captivating daintiness.
