The jeweller’s Perlée collection includes two secret watches, one presented as a bracelet and one as a sautoir.

Joyful and sparkling, the Van Cleef & Arpels Perlée collection presents a ballet of golden beads. This year, it is being enriched with luminous new creations: rings, pendants, earrings and – for the first time – a long necklace and four watches. With their rounded lines, they lend themselves to multiple combinations.

For the first time, the collection’s golden beads come together in a joyful dance to create two styles of secret jewelry watches: a bracelet and a pendant, with a design never seen before in Van Cleef & Arpels’ watchmaking collections. Inspired by the “toi et moi” jewelry style, the bracelet watches feature two different-sized motifs opposite one another on an open bangle. The larger of the two delicately pivots to reveal an elegant white mother-of-pearl dial surrounded by a border of round diamonds. In keeping with the Perlée collection’s playful spirit, each of these three pieces offers a different association of colors and materials. On the first, green malachite provides a joyful contrast to the colors of coral and pink gold, while lapis lazuli complements the brilliance of diamonds and yellow gold on the second. In a luminous harmony, the third watch combines rose gold with the sparkle of diamonds.
