Exhibition catalogue "Van Cleef & Arpels. The art of High Jewellery" at the Musée des Arts décoratifs, Paris (20 September 2012–10 February 2013).

The stylistic and technical development of these designs over the past century is traced in detail here for the first time, decade by decade, focusing on diamond and colored jewelry, ways of working gold, sources of inspiration (geometric, naturalistic...), recurring motifs…

The book reveals the consistency of the Maison’s formal repertoire over the years, interspersed with its emblematic technical innovations. Whether worn by anonymous or famous clients, these sublimely elegant jewels continue to stand the test of time.
