With its numerous transformable pieces, it reflects the virtuosity of craftsmen whose skills come together to celebrate a stone that offers a constant surprise to the eye: the emerald.

Over 1,400 carats of emeralds have been carefully selected by Van Cleef & Arpels’ expert gemologists to make up this High Jewelry collection. It is a feat made possible by the transmission of a skill and an eye through three generations of experts, over the course of more than a century.
