Van Cleef & Arpels, the French high jewellery maison internationally renowned for its enchanting creations, has proudly announced the opening of its first ever heritage exhibition in the Middle East - Treasures and Legends. The exhibition spans more than a century of creations from precious objects to exceptional one-offs - portraying the expert craftsmanship of more than 50 stunning treasures.
The collections have been inspired by the great ambassadors of their times: Kings and Queens, Princes and Princesses, Maharajahs and Maharanis, and aristocrats who all favoured the introduction of new gem designs and styles in their times.
Marking moments from the 20th century, the Art Deco movement, and the oriental inspirations of the 1970s, visitors can bask in the awe of the pieces and the history of this showcase as each item of jewellery will come accompanied by historical and whimsical back stories, reflecting the evolution of the maison’s distinctive style and its bonds with such lineage.
The exhibition will take place from 10 to 30 October at the Van Cleef & Arpels boutique in Dubai Opera Plaza.
