Embraced by the land, the Caspian Sea guards its riches at the frontier of the Caucasus and the Middle East. Stirred by stormy waves or sparkling in the sunlight, it blossoms into a gradation of intense, velvety blues.
Bleu Absolu necklace
White gold, round, pear-shaped, briolette-cut and baguette-cut diamonds, one pear-shaped DIF diamond of 14.22 carats, 5 sapphire drops for a total of 85.86 carats (Cashmere). The necklace is transformable.
Inspired by the design of the Diapason necklace, created by the Maison in 1987, the Bleu Absolu necklace gives pride of place to extremely rare gems that are laden with history. The five Kashmiri sapphires on its central pendant—weighing a total of 85.86 carats—once belonged to the Maharani of Baroda, well-known for her extravagant personality and vast collection of jewelry. With their rich, velvety blue, the drops cascade like beads of water, magnified by a DIF diamond of 14.22 carats. A pear-shaped stone of remarkable purity, it blends harmoniously with the lines of the necklace, which can be transformed at will. It can be worn in no less than six different ways, from a river of diamonds to a clip adorned with a cascade of exceptional stones.
Vagues Mystérieuses clip
White gold, diamonds, Paraíba-like tourmalines, sapphires, Mystery Set sapphires.
With the Vagues Mystérieuses clip, Van Cleef & Arpels offers a virtuoso interpretation of the volute in a subtle palette of blues. Highlighting the deep color of the sapphire, waves in Mystery Set coil up and succeed one another to evoke the rolling surf. Their spirals represent a genuine feat of jewelry making, with curved volumes and settings that extend all the way to the edges. Diamonds, sapphires and Paraíba-like tourmalines surge on either side of the motifs to bring this sea of precious stones to life.
