Van Cleef and Arpels, an exceptional workshop glimpse
The Maison’s workshops, which have recently been entirely renovated, are at the centre of its reputation for excellence. Located in Paris’ Place Vendôme, they are home to Van Cleef & Arpels’ Mains d’Or: the experienced craftsmen responsible for High Jewellery of extraordinary sophistication. The various craft-skills associated with jewellery-making are all represented: jewellers, setters, lapidaries and polishers. In all, some 40 Mains d’Or perpetuate the tradition of perfectionism, refinement and innovation which has always defined the Maison.
To celebrate the renovation, Van Cleef & Arpels is offering an exceptional glimpse behind the scenes at its workshops via a unique feat of technology: the 360° virtual tour. For the first time ever, a Maison of High Jewellery is presenting web-users with an interactive experience that takes them to the very heart of its creative process.
