The new pieces with Bouton d’or collection by Van Cleef & Arpels, and also a watch ♦ ︎
Gold buttons. A simple element, always used for clothing. From this small round metal, one of the largest jewelery Maison, Van Cleef & Arpels, launched the Bouton d’or collection, inspired by a jewelery design introduced in 1939. Launched in the spring of 2016, the collection now enriches with five new pieces. Not only: in addition to the jewelery line it also introduces a watch. New arrivals are a necklace, a ring, a bracelet, earrings and a pendant, always in pink gold and white gold rhodium-plated to enhance brilliance, with a diamond in the center of the button, embossed in castone. Diamonds are chosen among the finest quality classes: D, E or F for color, IF and VVS for purity. The structure consisting of so many small metal elements contributes to increasing the volume and reflections of jewelery. It is no coincidence that the shape resembles the luxury version of the sequins. New jewels are added to those that use corniola, mother of pearl, chrysoprase and yellow gold.
The Bouton d’or collection is inspired by the paillette pattern that is recorded in the archives of the Maison in 1939. In the forties, yellow pastilles are used in a variety of ways, for example with buttons assembled on a ring or along the threads of a double necklace. The motif was later evoked in the 1950s, with simple or crossed bracelets, ornamented earrings, until it reached 2016, with the rebirth of the buttons.
