With a name like Alhambra, Van Cleef & Arpels' new bling must have been inspired by the Alhambra Moorish palace complex in Granada, Spain. Indeed the name 'alhambra' literally means 'the red one' in reference to the lovely rose red colours of the stone when lit by the setting sun. However the new Van Cleef & Arpels bling is white gold but maybe they will use pink/red gold next time or pair the diamonds with red rubies to maintain the spirit of the name!
Exquisitely and painstakingly set, the diamonds in this lucky 4-leaf clover design is inspired by the timeless beauty of the Alhambra in Spain. RM 67,400
Alhambra was completed in the 14th century by the last Muslim rulers of the Nasrid dynasty, the last Muslim rulers in Europe. In 1492 King Ferdinand II of Aragorn and Queen Isbaella of Castille finally freed Alhambra from Muslim rule.
The Alhambra is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is breathtakingly beautiful even though it was built to serve as palace and fortress. Its Court of the Lions is world famous and Alhambra seduces not only visually but audio as the surrounding parks are filled with nightingales!
Van Cleef & Arpels' new Magic Alhambra weaves its spell through touch and sight though it can be assumed also by sound as one can guess the exclamation of joy upon receiving it!

Magic Alhambra Pavé Diamonds
Luck that is both exclusive and multiple
Luck with a high jewellery signature
Luck can be fickle. Magic Alhambra Pavé Diamonds
attracts it and plays with its emblem.
Each version of the lucky four-leaf clover varies in size,
each motif takes its place in a different manner, all are
adorned with diamonds of remarkable quality. This
radiant asymmetry beckons to a woman’s grace
Play with the setting to catch the light
The expert imagination of Van Cleef & Arpels’ Mains d’Or has adapted a
traditional technique used in High Jewellery. These outstanding craftsmen
have created a unique stone-setting architecture designed to highlight the
stones and minimize the metal.
Dazzling on the front and subtle on the back, honeycomb setting enhances
the diamond’s sparkle. The white gold base accentuates their glow. The
diamonds, cleverly positioned, seem to vibrate in the light.
The shine is tantalizing, alive and mysterious.
Eight jewels, eight reasons to glow
The famous pearly contour adorns eight new jewels. The long necklace or
sautoir in white gold features sixteen stylized clover motifs, each varying in
size. The charms that dangle happily from the earrings (in a single or triple
motif version) are asymmetrical and enhance the graceful line of the neck. A
necklace and a bracelet, woven from the finest of white gold chains, dance
in the light. Two rings, one single and the other “between–the-fingers”,
irresistibly attract the eye to the hand. A pendant radiantly celebrates the
exquisite diamond setting.
The Magic Alhambra Pavé Diamond collection is the alliance of happy-go-lucky
charm and the savoir-faire of Van Cleef & Arpels.
Each of its jewels can be worn with the other collections of Alhambra or
of Perlée: these multiple combinations will be an ode to the whimsy and
imagination of women.
Wear a Magic Alhambra jewel… and luck becomes even more desirable.
Thanks to the exclusive setting technique and the generous pavé effect, the
playful asymmetry accentuates the variations of light, enhances the sparkle of
diamonds and makes a woman’s beauty shine even stronger.
