Van Cleef & Arpels Lucky Alhambra 12 Motifs Long Gold Necklace

About the Item

Lucky Alhambra long necklace, 12 motifs, 18K yellow gold, carnelian, tiger’s eye, white and gray mother-of-pearl, malachite. REF. VCARD80100 Carnelian: 2 stones Malachite: 3 stones Mother-of-pearl: 5 stones Tiger Eye: 2 stones Concealed clasp in 18K yellow gold Chain length: 34.65 inches Faithful to the very first Alhambra® jewel created in 1968, the Lucky Alhambra creations by Van Cleef & Arpels are distinguished by their unique, timeless elegance. Jacques — the nephew of Estelle Arpels, who founded Van Cleef & Arpels with her husband, Alfred, in 1906 — liked to say, “To be lucky, you must believe in luck.” This mantra is embodied in the four-leaf clover motif, which can be found in sketches in the house’s archives dating to the 1910s. The quatrefoil shape also has architectural resonance, found in Gothic and Renaissance structures and, of course, in such Moorish buildings as the Alhambra palace in Granada, Spain, which gave its name to the Van Cleef & Arpels line. The first Alhambra jewel was a long gold chain with 20 gold clovers, the surface of each creased and edged in gold beads. In 1971, the house began making the motif in colorful opaque hard stones, including malachite, lapis lazuli, onyx, coral, tiger’s-eye and turquoise. Today, pieces incorporating these stones and a beaded border are referred to as Vintage Alhambra. All PRADERA jewels are guaranteed and come from sustainable and reliable sources and owners.
