Van Cleef and Arpels is no stranger to creating exquisite jewelry collections, featuring extreme detail and precision only achievable by years of perfecting their craftsmanship techniques. This time, their inspiration came from the greatest love story ever told, Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet.

To create effects of volume, perspective, and relief, the pieces combine different stone cuts, setting techniques and shades.

 

Based on acclaimed Los Angeles-based French choreographer Benjamin Millepied’s dance interpretation of the Shakespearean play, the jewelry collection features more than 100 distinct pieces ranging from the figurative to the abstract while offering a modern version of the epic love story based on Shakespeare’s 1597 tragedy.

Van Cleef and Arpels offer a bravado jewelry collection where the interplay of different stone cuts, setting techniques, and color gradations offer a masterful play on volume. The dominant color palette: red and blue denoting the two warring families; mauve the color of the united love of the young, fated heroes; while green, quite simply and essentially, symbolizes hope.
