BRIGHT AS A BUTTON

The newest icon at Van Cleef & Arpels: the Bouton d'or

-

The latest entrant to the universe of Van Cleef & Arpels, Bouton d’or, derives inspiratio­n from the archives of the maison, in particular a technique called the “paillette”, which was used in the 1930s. Essentiall­y, a concave or convex plate of mother-of-pearl, carnelian, onyx or chrysopras­e is punctuated by a diamond stud, and these “buttons” are then stringed together by the masterful Mains d’or at Van Cleef & Arpels to culminate in a three-dimensiona­l suite.
