Van Cleef & Arpels does it again with fairy clips


From the same people who brought us the exquisite Mystery Pen, a $750,000 masterpiece that features 840 diamonds, comes the newest jewel-encrusted fairy clips, part of renowned boutique jeweler Van Cleef & Arpels’ “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” collection.

Van Cleef & Arpels, which was founded in 1906 in Paris, has been the top choice of some of the world’s most powerful women for decades, including former first lady of Argentina Eva Peron and Grace Kelly, princess of Monaco. With the launch of the company’s newest fairy clips, clients will truly feel like royalty.

The three new clips range in price from nearly $200,000 to more than $600,000, and after one look, you’ll realize they are well worth the price. The Alicorne Fairy Clip in white gold and diamonds, priced at $198,000, stands out for its delicate intricacy. The $248,000 Lumeline Fairy Clip in yellow and white gold includes a pear-shaped diamond, mandarin garnets and yellow sapphires.

The crown jewel – literally – of them all, though, is the $627,000 Pimprenelle Fairy Clip, which features a lean and beautiful contrast of sparkling white and deep blue, thanks to white golf, a round of baguette diamonds, and one 5.08-carat Kashmir sapphire.

These sparkling works of wearable art could be just what the world’s haute consumers are looking for.
