Van cleef & arpels alhambra: “luxury good luck charms” of the jewelry world

“Luck” has always been one of the core and inseparable elements of jeweler Van Cleef & Arpels. Acting as a “guide light”, the element of luck has always been the theme that inspires select creations of the Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry “empire”. Wood talismans, amulets, or godmothers bless,… with four-leaf clover motifs appeared in Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry designs decades ago until the Alhambra Collection with paintings. The main detail simulating the shape of a four-leaf clover appeared in 1968 and became a classic symbol that reminds the world of the most famous jeweler in France.

Since his childhood, Jacques Arpels – a descendant of the founders of Van Cleef & Arpels has always been passionate about collecting four-leaf clovers that he “fortunately” found among the clover growing in Vietnam. backyard garden. From his childhood “hunts” for four-leaf clovers, Jacques has learned his life’s maxim: Just like believing and needing in the “luck factor” to be able to find the middle four-leaf clover. an endless field of clover, then “For luck, one should always believe in luck” (rough translation).

Even growing up, Jacques has always kept his passion for collecting four-leaf clovers and giving them to relatives, friends and even his colleagues at Van Cleef & Arpels as a way of sharing luck. It is the love of four-leaf clovers and the strong belief in luckby Jacques has contributed to making this plant a symbol of good fortune not only for Van Cleef & Arpels but the whole world when it comes to its world of luxury jewelry.

First released to the public in 1968, there were many opinions that the Alhambra motif was designed based on the four-leaf clover that Jacques always loved. But in fact, the name “Alhambra” of this jewelry creation is named after the Alhambra palace (Grenada, Spain), whose arches reminiscent of traditional Moorish motifs with architectural frames.

consists of four overlapping circles (the pattern also functions as a good luck charm – a legend that derives from the motif of the Touch Wood rings introduced by Van Cleef & Arpels in the 1920s). Leaving speculation behind its mystical aura, Alhambra motifs in the fairy tale of the gem “universe”written by Jacques is probably the harmonious interference between the rich patterns from nature and art.

Jacques’ first Alhambra creation was an opera necklace with 20 pieces of textured gold-creased surfaces and metal frames. surrounded by adjacent round marbles. All crafted in premium pure gold and finely mounted by the master craftsmen of Van Cleef & Arpels.

In the following 70s, this simple but timeless beauty of the four-pointed clover became a favorite and “must-have” of the “players” in the world. high-class power, royal members and famous A-listers at that time such as Françoise Hardy, Elizabeth Taylor and Romy Schneider, etc. However, it was the Princess of Monaco – Grace Kelly who contributed to the design. Alhambra’s designer became more known to the public when she often appeared with a necklace made of malachite that she bought in 1975.
