Feminine, glamorous and refined… for more than a century, the Van Cleef & Arpels style has been distinct from all others. Naturally, the jeweller brings this same craftsmanship and wonderment to the measurement of time. Through its Poetic Complications, these two worlds become one as complication watches are transformed into jewels, or jewels are sculpted into watches.


Established in 1906 at 22 Place Vendôme, the story of Van Cleef & Arpels began when Alfred Van Cleef married Estelle Arpels in 1895. For more than a century, their two names have fashioned some of the most beautiful moments in the history of Fine Jewellery.The company lost no time in demonstrating its expertise in the creation of fabulous jewels. Driven by a passion for beauty and excellence, Van Cleef & Arpels, which joined the Richemont Group in 2000, perpetuates a uniquely recognisable style, rich in creativity, enchantment, culture and poetry. Inspired by Nature, Couture and Fantasy, its jewellery and watches throw open the doors to a world of everlasting beauty and harmony.
