After discovering a trove of letter wood in the attic of the brand’s Place Vendôme maison, Van Cleef & Arpels Jewelry North America president and CEO Nicolas Bos and team decided to honor the find and use it to create the touch wood Van Cleef & Arpels Vintage Alhambra collection. Each Van Cleef & Arpels Alhambra necklace, Van Cleef & Arpels Alhambra bracelet and Van Cleef & Arpels Alhambra earrings in the collection is limited and numbered and set in rose gold — a first for the brand’s signature, four-leaf clover-shaped Alhambras. “It’s a warm color and the modern alternative to yellow gold,” Bos says of the choice to use rose gold. “With the wood it was an interesting feeling — more of a vintage feeling that still felt like a very new combination.” Charmed, for sure!
