Founded by love through the marriage of Alfred Van Cleef and Estelle Arpels in 1896, the House of Van Cleef & Arpels has become famous all over the world for producing the very best designs that feature only the most breathtaking gemstones. These platinum and diamond ear clips each feature four expertly shaped, abstract flame motifs that appear to caress the ear. Each flame is set with claw set colourless brilliants which produce an intense sparkle that mirrors the intensity of fire itself. The magical and sculptural qualities of flames feature in many designs of the House. Flame or ‘haricot’ clips were first produced in the 1930s and featured in the collection of Jackie Kennedy, who wore two examples in a number of different ways. Produced between the 1940s-1960s, these signed earrings were handcrafted in the New York workshops and feature a hand stamped serial number. This was an important period for the top French jewellery houses, as it was becoming fashionable to wear statement jewels to intimate cocktail parties. During this time the reputation of Van Cleef & Arpels was at a particular high point, as the House would create the coronation jewels for the Emperor and Empress of Iran in 1967. With a global network of luxury boutiques augmented by the flagship showrooms in Paris and New York, the House was the only destination for the most famous and wealthy personages in the world. The very best designs are truly timeless, and the bold and sculptural style of this piece makes it highly collectible and coveted today.
