Van Cleef & Arpels
, the famous Parisian jewelry company, recently celebrated the first half century
of its historical Alhambra collection
. In fact, the iconic four-leafed clover
has been the symbol of elegance and femininity since 1968
, a distinctive sign of the Maison’s unmistakable and timeless style. An event was organized inside the historical El Badi Palace in Marrakesh
. An ancient architectonic complex that still holds the fascination of the past. Surrounded by high walls, this wonderful location hides within it an enormous garden with orange trees. A unique setting which, on the occasion of the anniversary, was illuminated by a sparkling carpet of lanterns and candles, making the atmosphere even more magical and fairytale-like. The choice of the location itself recalled the collection. Considered as a jewel of Islamic art. Its construction was inspired by the Alhambra in Granada
. A constant feature of the Company’s creations are the journeys made in the Sixties and Seventies that inspired the Arples brothers so much as to become an integral part of their jewelry.
