For the first time since the launch of the Perlée collection, Van Cleef & Arpels is introducing coloured precious stones onto three sparkling new rings. Inspired by the Caroline rings and bracelets created by maison in the late 1970s, these Perlée couleurs rings combine the gleaming golden beads with vibrant rubies, sapphires and emeralds.
Not only are they beautiful, these rings are also designed to fit comfortably on the finger, with an asymmetric shape that tapers from widest at the summit of the ring to thinnest on the bottom. There are also white diamond versions of these rings, available in yellow, white gold, and rose gold.
Other new creations include five new Perlée couleurs rings in yellow gold, each with an ornamental stone of either onyx, malachite, lapis lazuli, turquoise or coral between golden beads. With their rounded shapes, these rings are reminiscent of Van Cleef & Arpels’ Philippine rings from 1968.
Similar to the rings, fun and vibrant colours have also been added to two yellow gold Perlée couleurs bangle and pendant sets featuring lapis lazuli or coral. The open bangle is composed of a multitude of golden beads that seem to cascade around the wrist, with one end domed with white diamonds and the other set with a cabochon of lapis lazuli or coral.
To complement this, the matching pendants with lapis lazuli or coral cabochons are elegantly framed by a ring of golden beads.
