This month the French haute jewellery house, Van Cleef & Arpels will open its third Maison in Hong Kong, signalling its intentions in Asia. The impressive new flagship covers two floors and provides a new shopping experience. To celebrate this landmark, Van Cleef & Arpels introduces an exclusive Ballerina Dancer collection – a collection we assure, is one to keep your eyes out for.
 

In 1940, Van Cleef & Arpels created its first jewellery piece in dedication to dance.

Capturing the elegant arabesques and poetry of a ballerina’s movement on stage, the Ballerina Dancer collection signifies a special moment in time and space, making it precisely the perfect way to celebrate the opening of the Hong Kong Maison.
 

Being true to the Maison’s spirit of transformation and creativity, the Ballerina Dance set consists of a necklace and a detachable clip jewellery set.

The Ballerina Dancer set is a high jewellery piece in which the necklace is embedded with brilliant, pear and navette cut diamonds to provide the ballerina with a gorgeous and luxurious setting for her graceful performance. Similarly, the Ballerina Dancer clip boasts a rose cut diamond representing her face, diamond tiaras, slippers and leotard, and is accented with a ruby tutu that we’re positive will make any woman the object of envy.

The Mystery Setting® technique

What is the mystery setting technique you ask? It is only the most outstanding jewellery setting technique in the world of jewellery making, the Mystery Setting® was created by         Van Cleef & Arpels in 1933.

In fact, there are no visible prongs in this setting – the precious gems are mysteriously fixed onto a jewellery piece, and thus the name of the technique. Craftsman spins a gossamer web of rose gold where each stone finds its place on the clip in accordance to its size after it's been carefully selected.

Meanwhile, the Ballerina Dancer decor timepiece is an exceptional women’s timepiece that is limited to 22 pieces. Its 38mm white gold case is set with round diamonds to give out a sense of ultimate luxury. Without any numerals or indexes, its simplistic white mother-of-pearl dial houses a white gold sculpted ballerina in the same posture as the Ballerina Dancer set with her spinning tutu sculpted by red lacquer and diamond settings. Attached to a satin strap, the timepiece beats to the Swiss mechanical 830P movement.
