With its flamboyant red hues, features a bird in full fight, spreading its sumptuous wings on a dazzling celestial background. The earrings and the necklace offer the stunning combination of the spinel's incandescent red with the subtle gradation of pink sapphires.
Aerial and elusive, birds are among the winged creatures that inspire Van Cleef & Arpels, along with dragonflies, butterflies and, of course, the Maison's emblematic fairies. The poetry of legends and Nature's constant renewal are themes which enduringly enrich Van Cleef & Arpels' imagination; birds are naturally at the heart of these sources of inspiration. Always in movement, their grace offers endless delight as we observe them hovering over a flower, courting a mate or about to take fight. Whether delicate or majestic, birds are a constant invitation to representation; figurative or stylised, they are always precious.
The Oiseau Flamboyant set is currently in New Bond Street and available for photo shoots.
