The legendary jeweler celebrates Noah’s Ark with a collection of 60 high jewellery clips and a flamboyant exhibition in Paris.
Giraffes, monkeys, penguins, rabbits, koalas … A whole menagerie signed Van Cleef and Arpels settles throughout the month of September at the Hotel d’Evreux.

The scenography of the exhibition was designed by the artist Bob Wilson. With the sound of soft music punctuated by thunderclaps at the entrance of the exhibition and videos with images of the ocean, one is immediately immersed. Ark mirage floating jewels… A true poetic enchantment.
Finally, L’Ecole Van Cleef & Arpels has included in its program a conference “Precious Pets: a jewellery bestiary” at 8pm on September 15th and will hold creative workshops for children and teenagers focused on the animals of Noah’s Ark.
Noah’s Ark told by Van Cleef & Arpels, from 3 to 23 September 2016 @ Hotel d’Evreux – 19 Place Vendome, Paris 1st. Open daily from 12am to 20h.
