The Alhambra collection, a Van Cleef & Arpels icon, meets the diamond in a dazzling tribute: Magic Alhambra Pavé Diamonds.

Eight pieces, in white gold, make up this collection, never before seen. The generous pave setting pays homage to the most exacting standards of the Maison: those of High Jewellery.

Since 1968, the iconic Alhambra collection has become the lucky charm of those who wear it and those who offer the jewels as gifts.

Van Cleef & Arpels now launches an even more dazzling opportunity for happiness. The Magic Alhambra Pavé Diamonds collection highlights its symbols of good luck, health, prosperity and true love. What's the secret? An exclusive pavé setting of exquisite diamonds, all rigorously selected, set in white gold.

Luck that is both exclusive and limitless Luck with a High Jewellery signature Each version of the lucky four-leaf clover varies in size; all are adorned with diamonds of remarkable quality. This radiant asymmetry is designed to enhance a woman's grace and elegance.

Play with the setting to catch the light For the Magic Alhambra pavé diamonds, the Mains d'Or at Van Cleef & Arpels, have adapted a traditional technique used in High Jewellery. These outstanding craftsmen have created a unique stone-setting architecture designed to minimize the precious metal.

Sparkling on the front and subtle on the back, the honeycomb setting enhances the diamond's inner light. The white gold surround accentuates their clarity. The diamonds, cleverly positioned, seem to vibrate in the light.

The shine is tantalizing, alive and mysterious.

Eight jewels, eight reasons to glow The famous golden perlée contours of the clover adorn eight new jewels. The long necklace or sautoir in white gold features sixteen stylized clover motifs, each varying in size. The charms that dangle happily from the earrings (in a single or triple motif version) are asymmetrical and enhance the graceful line of the neck. A necklace and a bracelet, woven from the finest of white gold chains, dance in the light. Two rings, one single and the other "between–the-fingers", irresistibly attracts the eye to the hand. A pendant radiantly celebrates the exquisite diamond

The Magic Alhambra Pavé Diamond collection is the alliance of happy-go-lucky charm and the savoir-faire of Van Cleef & Arpels.

Each of its jewels can be worn with the other collections of Alhambra or of Perlée: these multiple combinations will be an ode to the whimsy and imagination of women.

Wear a Magic Alhambra jewel... and luck becomes even more desirable.

Thanks to the exclusive setting technique and the generous pavé effect, the playful asymmetry accentuates the variations of light, enhances the sparkle of diamonds and makes a woman's beauty shine even stronger.

This alliance of jewellery expertise and radiant creativity gives Van Cleef & Arpels the opportunity to offer a new and spectacular take on a timeless icon.
