‘With a history that spans 110 years, Van Cleef & Arpels opened its first boutique at Place Vendôme in Paris in 1906. Renowned for its creativity and inventiveness, designs such as the Zip necklace and the Maison’s signature Mystery Set technique have become icons in the jewellery world.’ The Jewellery Editor.
Also on display are 250 rare gems and minerals from the well known collection of the French National Museum of Natural History.
Children are catered for as well – activities include a workshop making your own jewellery out of cardboard.
