Founded at Paris’ 22 Place Vendôme in 1906, Van Cleef & Arpels came into being, following Estelle Arpels’ marriage to Alfred Van Cleef in 1895. Over the decades, the excellence and creativity of the High Jewelry Maison established its reputation across the world.

With a blend of inventiveness and poetry, Van Cleef & Arpels perpetuates a highly distinctive style that has produced numerous signatures: the Mystery Set technique, the transformable Zip necklace and the Alhambra motif. The selection of gemstones according to the most stringent criteria and the savoir-faire of its craftsmen have given birth to enchanting jewelry and watchmaking collections.

Created at Place Vendôme in 2012 with the support of Van Cleef & Arpels, L’ÉCOLE, School of Jewelry Arts introduces the general public to the world of jewelry. It offers a rich program of classes, lectures, exhibitions and creative workshops to a large and varied audience, from Paris to Tokyo, New York, Dubai or Hong Kong SAR - China where a permanent campus is also settled.

A devotee of dance ever since its origins, the Maison has strengthened its commitment to the arts with Dance Reflections by Van Cleef & Arpels. Launched in 2020, this initiative – guided by the values of creation, transmission and education – aims to uphold the artists and institutions that showcase the choreographic repertoire, while encouraging new productions.
