Among all the collections from Van Cleef & Arpels, the Frivole collection is among the most well-loved. This year, the French jeweller has released new additions to the line — consisting of beautiful bracelets, bangles, a secret watch, pendants, and some earrings, all of which pay homage to the glory of spring. At the base of these creations is gold, white gold, and rose gold — all of which express the bloom and charms of the season.
In line with Van Cleef & Arpels traditions, the Frivole collection comes with gold that is polished in such a way that each petal of the flower shines and gleams.Every stone is scrupulously selected and placed with careful intention, to reflect intense colour and dazzling brightness. No strangers to flora, the maison derives its inspiration, as always, from the surrounding nature’s metamorphoses, having reinterpreted the beauty of the plant world since 1906.
In the gold line, a particular highlight to eye is the seven-flower bracelet, consisting of heart-shaped petals placed around diamonds. There is also a “secret-watch”, where a dial has been paved with diamonds and hidden underneath a bouquet of polished gold flowers. The design evokes, in a rather poetic way, the vitality and diversity of nature.
The white gold pieces include a new 5-flower bracelet that has been generously embellished with sparkling diamonds, as well as a delicate “tete-a-tete” ring. There is also an intimate cluster of mirror-polished white gold, and a diamond ring with three flowers on one side, and one on the other. In white gold there’s also large-format pendants and motifs, that could be worn on the wrist, through a chain or pinned to your favourite blazer. For the adventurous, try it on your hair.
A first time for Frivole, the rose gold options include earrings or pendant in a spring-like palette with it’s tender shades. Either options are fresh, feminine and celebrates the shimmering colours of nature. Rose gold makes the base, but at the centre of the flowers, these pieces have a bright pink sapphire.
