“Van Cleef & Arpels, Precious Jewels Telling Time” exhibition honours the early jewellery and watchmaking tradition of the Maison.
Currently running from now until November 22, 2023, brand patrons can not only marvel its dazzling new collections in the Les Salons Dubai Opera boutique at Dubai Opera Plaza, but also marvel at a curated selection of jewels, interesting objects, and archival drawings (dating back to 1925 up until the 1970s).
Uncovering 27 watches, table clocks and precious objects, the showcase highlights the Maison’s beauty, technical complexity and distinctive approach to telling time. Despite the historical references, visitors will be surprised to learn that the modern designs, usually crafted from a melange of gems and diamonds, are inspired by these creations – many of which are transformable jewels that offer various styling options. This selection distills the defining features of Van Cleef & Arpels throughout decades of jewellery and watchmaking savoir-faire, constantly enriched with innovation.
This won’t be the first nor the last time Van Cleef & Arpels will be unveiling an exhibition in-store. Throughout 2023, the Maison brings in different themes and collections sourced worldwide as the brand’s form of continuous education and cultural enrichment for jewellery enthusiasts and curious minds.
