Back in 1968, Van Cleef & Arpels introduced its first Alhambra long necklace, inspired by the four-leaf clover motif and decades later, the incredibly humble motif has established itself as the epitome of the Maison and probably the most iconic good luck charm. 

From the message it carries to the breathtaking savoir-faire behind the making, the Alhambra collection embodies Van Cleef & Arpels’ tradition of excellence and poetic approach on jewellery. This year, with new designs and unseen collision of materials, Van Cleef & Arpels Alhambra collection once again proves that simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. 

Four new Magic Alhambra long necklaces are taking up their places in the Alhambra collection. The unmistakable clover motifs are reinterpreted with noble materials teeming with the beauty of nature.

The bluish hues of chalcedony radiate with the sheen of white gold, while the grey mother-of-pearl mingles its kaleidoscopic lustre with the warmth of rose gold.

Blue agate – which is first seen in the collection in 1989, makes a comeback with yellow gold to evoke a whimsical moment where the day and night meet. Sun, the giver of life, is imagined in guilloché yellow gold and interplays of dazzling lines, which is then conjured on the Magic Alhambra long necklace and a matching Vintage Alhambra ring

The Sweet Alhambra jewellery watch brings together two never-seen-before materials in the Alhambra collection, the pink mother-of-pearl and guilloché rose gold. Around the guilloché dial, the bracelet alternates two carefully curated light-catching materials to deliver an elegant statement piece with silky overtones.
