Van Cleef & Arpels
French luxury jewelry brand Van Cleef & Arpels is known for its commitment to romantic design, and the 2019 “Romeo and Juliet” collection is no exception. To inspire luxury jewelry, Van Cleef & Arpels designers have immortalized the greatest love story of all time with more than 100 unique jewelry pieces that convey the themes of Shakespeare’s romantic classic. The heroes of the enduring love story, the balcony where Juliet waits for Romeo, the flowery gardens and architecture of Verona and many other elements of this classic tragedy are depicted in gold and precious stones. The palette of this enormous collection is not limited to sapphires and emeralds. Colorful corundum, malachite, lapis lazuli, spinel, garnet, diamonds and pearls offer an astonishing feast of color with their unusual cuts and harmonious placement.
As the countdown to Valentine’s Day begins, the first thing that comes to mind is the Cartier “LOVE” collection, a reflection of the deepest passion. Designed by Aldo Cipullo in New York in 1969, the timeless design was relaunched in 2017, radically modernizing the emotions that bind lovers together into an icon. Designed for men and women, this striking icon locks with a screwdriver, trapping the relationship in an enveloping circle of love. A symbol of commitment to romance, Cartier “LOVE” bracelets can be worn individually or together, further strengthening love. The simplicity of the design enhances its appeal, and the entire “LOVE” collection follows a similar form: in white, pink or yellow gold, or studded with diamonds…
Another of Roberto Coin’s collections is dedicated to the English classic “Romeo and Juliet”. The “Love in Verona” collection pays homage to the city of Verona, the setting of this timeless love story, legendary in literature. Verona is also the home of the “Juliet Club”. Thousands of love letters to Juliet from all over the world are analyzed in this romantic club, which has been in existence since 1930.
“Love in Verona” collection is designed in three shades of gold on polished and satin surfaces. The four-leaf clover refers to the architectural structure of the Verona Arena, one of the city’s symbols, and is the centerpiece of the brand’s other collections.
