Here’s one of the best and most harmonious Valentine’s Day-aimed collections we’ve seen so far. The jewels seen here are part of the Sweet Alhambra Collection signed Van Cleef & Arpels.
This stunning collection is superbly characterized by two substantial elements – Carnelian, one of the first ever stones to be used in jewelry, and pink gold, which brings back the elegance of the early 20th century. We also think that one of the reasons behind the addition of the carnelian stone to this collection is that it is considered to protect from fear and misfortune.
Nevertheless, they look pretty awesome and I can’t think of any reasons your beloved would not immediately fall in love with such pieces. Furthermore, the entire collection can be purchased and worn as a whole, Valentine’s Day heart theme. Anyway, let’s check on the lot, piece by piece:
The first we’ll present are the Effeuillage earstuds, priced at $6,950. Through the word Effeuillage, the creator wants to express the game of “he loves me, he loves me not”, as one lover plucks the petals of a daisy flower. A short description of these earstuds would go like this: they feature three hearts surrounding a small diamond placed in the middle, while anchored to a fourth heart.
The Effeuillage ring costs $4,550 and goes after a similar theme to the one describing the earstuds. The ring boast four petal hearts, three of them placed around a diamond, while the fourth dangles of the top of the ring. The last heart features a burnished gold back, which can be inscribed accordingly, in a romantic way, of course.
The collection also includes a gorgeous pendant. Dubbed the Sweet Alhambra Heart Pendant, it can be purchased at $1,500 and sports skittish motifs and bright tones. The point behind this gorgeous pendant is related to happiness, which renews itself every day, as time goes by, on course with the change of events. Dangling of the pendant is a heart shaped carnelian which glows majestically atop this pink gold caprice.
Closing up Van Cleef & Arpels’ impressive Sweet Alhambra Valentine’s Day Collection is a cute bracelet priced at $1,400. The manufacturer has called it the Sweet Alhambra Heart Bracelet as it nicely blends the elegance of pink gold with the cuteness of a heart-shaped red carnelian. The beaded contours top the nice design off.
