同樣以極致簡潔貫徹 Cartier 設計理念的 Love 系列，為年輕世代紀念雋永愛情的真摯選擇。將說不盡的千絲萬緒濃縮至輕巧橢圓手環，緊密的閉合設計與絲螺造型傳遞源源不絕的炙熱情感，以及那份為了愛勇往直前的義無反顧。其 Love 系列流露中性魅力，於此紛亂年代，好似鼓舞著不論是誰，皆有愛人與被愛的權利。
Cartier 中最具玩味的 Juste un Clou 系列，將一枚平凡螺絲賦予新生，昇華為純淨俐落的珠寶珍品，打破傳統珠寶的設計陳規，完美體現無畏進取的新時代精神，進而讓佩戴者感受超脫框架的原創力。從入門手環與戒指，到磊瑰不羈的袖扣和領帶夾，藉由相異K金與鑲鑽細節，率性呼應青春世代下追夢者眼底的流光溢彩。
Van Cleef & Arpels 典雅光輝
顆顆如露珠般晶瑩剔透的 Palmyre 系列，靈感汲取自對稱的 Art Deco 美學，綴以高級鑽石搭配K金鏤空設計凸顯纖巧流線，選用深淺有致的粉色藍寶石與澄淨白鑽層疊排列，如恣意濺起的浪花般漫不經心，卻愈顯生動清麗，舉手投足間散發典雅女人味。
縱情於山野光景，Folie des Prés 系列嚴選極致美鑽搭配多彩寶石，透過豐富切割與流麗線條打造耀目繁花盛放之姿，飽滿挺立的輪廓隨風靈動輕擺，承襲 Van Cleef & Arpels 標誌性的不對稱設計，於白鑽、藍寶石交錯間演繹自然風貌，為成熟女性增添一抹沈穩生動光輝。
Van Cleef & Arpels 幸運象徵
千禧世代渴求幸運，期盼將不可預知的未來寄情於物，便得以說明 Alhambra 系列如此受歡迎的原因。將四葉圖騰發揮得恰如其分，不僅成為世界通行的幸運標記，也與 Van Cleef & Arpels 劃上了等號。其系列推出四款神秘吊墜錶，將流年軌跡掩映於方寸中，鑲嵌寶石的圖騰與細緻黃K金圓珠相互輝映，回溯懷錶的優雅溫婉時光。
Through the passing of time, classic High Jewelry continues to bloom with magnificent colors. While inheriting the historical spirits of the jewelry houses, they also lead the trend of modern aesthetics, touching our hearts with their unwavering brilliance and beauty. Continuing our last chapter of Timeless Classics, the story of how the past has never been lost carries on. The sweet history engraved into the colorful gemstones and diamonds becomes an eternal testament that defies time, change and any challenges that come our way.
King of Freedom
Born in 1924, the Trinity collection has become a symbol of life’s most intimate relationships: love, fidelity and friendship. With three intertwined bands in pink, yellow and white gold, the perfectly balanced jewelry overrules any overly complicated words and designs. Simple and minimalistic, they encapsulate years of countless memories that represent the charm and wisdom of life, a perfect declaration of Cartier’s timeless style and taste.
The ultimate desire of a mature woman cannot be represented better by the classic panther, which is a symbol of seduction, rebellion and freedom. A timeless Maison icon, the Panthère de Cartier adds a touch of charming elegance to the bold panther silhouette. As if walking with royalty and leisure, the jewelry pieces adorn the neck and the hand with a selection of delicate diamonds, emerald and onyx. The Panthère de Cartier is a force to be reckoned with.
An Era of Frivolity
A choice for the younger generation to commemorate their love, Cartier’s LOVE collection is a symbol of free-spirited romance. Condensing our endless passion into its oval shape, the bracelet’s screw motif and famous locking technology are both timeless design signatures of the Maison and a testament of our fearlessness in the face of love. In this time of uncertainty, it is as if the LOVE collection becomes a bold declaration: everyone has the right to love and be loved.
Perhaps one of Cartier’s most jolly collections, the Juste un Clou transforms a simple nail into a precious object by breaking through conventions. Perfectly reflecting the bold spirit of the era, the jewelry line is charged with the limitless power of creativity. From bracelets and rings to cufflinks and tie clips, the collection exists in different kinds of gold and both paved and non-paved designs—a call out to all the young dream chasers who are original, free and independent.
With Elegance and Brilliance
Inspired by the Art Deco aesthetics, the Van Cleef & Arpels Palmyre collection streams with luscious diamonds glittering like drops of water. As the diamonds embrace the gradating of pink sapphires and brilliant diamonds, the fluid lines recreate the enchanting sight of the rippling waves, accentuating the eternal charm of elegant femininity.
To celebrate the beauty of nature, the Folie des Prés collection offers creations adorned with colorful gemstones. Through various different cuts and spectacular lines, the silhouettes come to life like flowers wavering in the wind. The iconic Van Cleef & Arpels designs perfectly capture the harmony between diamonds and sapphire, an addition of vitality and diversity to the elegant femininity.
A Symbol of Fortune
Earnest for good fortune, millennials tend to entrust their future with lucky charms or talismans. This explains why the Alhambra collection is so popular among the younger generation. The four-leaf clover-inspired series has not only become a universal token of luck, but also a timeless icon of Van Cleef & Arpels. Concealing time at the heart of the emblematic motif, the collection comes in four different secret pendant watches. As the gemstones echo with the intense radiance of guilloché gold, we are taken back in time to relive the times of tenderness and love.
Continuing the lucky totem of the four-leaf clover, the Perlée collection comes in yellow gold, white gold and rose gold. Adorned with five or ten precious clover motifs, the bracelets and rings are all graced by a golden bead at their center. Ideal to mix and match in accordance to personal style, the pieces bring a touch of warmth to our quotidian, celebrating the joyful femininity as we are blessed with the brilliance of the diamonds and golden beads.
