Van Cleef & Arpels is holding the amazing Pierres Précieuses exhibition from September 16, 2020 to June 14, 2021 at Paris’ National Museum of Natural History. This event goes around a one-of-a-kind objet “Rocher aux Merveilles” – which means Rock of Marvels – created especially for this show. It consists of a stand of rough stones that holds 9 high jewelry marvels resulting in an amazing painting. We are talking about the Unicorn clip, the Chimera bracelet with the removable head, the Nature Bicolore ring, the Fairy Ostara piece – which you can wear as a clip or a pendant – the three Laurier-rose clips (each with a different center stone: blue sapphire, purple sapphire or a ruby), the Fairy and the Cascade clip, and the Saphirs en Cascade earrings.
You should note that some of the pieces can be worn differently, but each way is hidden – for example, a part of the Unicorn’s flank can be removed, thus revealing the fastening that enables it to be worn as a clip.
