Van Cleef & Arpels – Bouton D’or Collection

VCA’s Bouton D’or collection is a reinterpretation of the maison’s jewelry motif called ‘‘Paillette’’, created in the late 1930s. The design lends itself to multiple plays of associations, volume and colors, producing a style that is both graphic and feminine; adorned with a diamond at their centers.

Characterized by bold associations of materials, the collection is made up of two sets of five pieces. Gently reflecting the light, pink gold magnifies the delicate overtones of mother-of-pearl and the warm hue of carnelian, a symbol of life. In a more contrasted pairing, yellow gold accentuates the encounter between the rich, deep black color of onyx and chrysoprase, whose spring-like green suffuses the creations with a luminous vitality. Fringed with discretely mobile pastilles, two pieces combine rounded curves with the geometric purity of the lozenge, to adorn a finger or give shape to a pendant that can be transformed into a clip.
