“A jewel serves to remind us that we dream, design, create and work because we love. And Van Cleef & Arpels, born from love and poetry, always revisit love and poetry”, as Franco Cologni writes in his book Elogio della mano (Marsilio), dedicated to the Maison and the high jewellery trades.
The Van Cleef & Arpels universe - where gold, platinum, diamonds and precious stones are crafted with sublime expertise and techniques - is being showcased, for the first time in Italy, in Milan’s Palazzo Reale until 20 February 2020 in an exhibition curated by Alba Cappellieri. Van Cleef & Arpels: il Tempo, la Natura e l’Amore (Van Cleef & Arpels: Time, Nature and Love) is a compelling experience across over 400 jewels, timepieces and precious objects, the icons of a timeless beauty. Promoted by Comune di Milano Cultura and Palazzo Reale and produced by the French Maison in a collaboration with Fondazione Cologni dei Mestieri d’Arte.
