Nature has always been a rich source of inspiration for artists, be it painters, writers, lyricists, photographers or designers. As a jeweller, Van Cleef & Arpels is not immune to its allure either, so much so that it has become a true master in interpreting nature's colours and shapes into dazzling pieces of jewellery coveted by women all over the world.
Nowhere is this more evident than in the Frivole collection which is defined by a lush bouquet of blooms crafted in precious metals and gems. Each jewellery is mirror-polished to a magnificent shine; on yellow gold, this effect is evocative of the sun's warm reflection.
Such is the vibrancy of the collection that American photographer Olivia Bee has chosen to contrast it against a snowy landscape.The images emphasise the jewellery's incandescent quality amidst the stark whiteness.
