Van Cleef & Arpels 2019 Limited Edition Vintage Alhambra Pendant

Every year, Van Cleef & Arpels launches a Limited Edition Vintage Alhambra Pendant for the Holiday season. 2019’s edition, created in Celestial Blue porcelain with yellow gold, was once again designed in collaboration with the renowned Manufacture national de Sèvres previous Limited Editions include the Alhambra in raspberry pink, pale pink, and bleu de Sèvres. Founded in 1740, the the Manufacture has supplied porcelain tableware, decorative ornaments, and art objects, to the Kings of France, including several foreign royal courts.

This Limited Edition piece in Sèvres porcelain requires 20 different steps, including firing, polishing, and enamelling. And, because porcelain is super fragile, VCA developed a special setting technique to ensure that the Alhambra motif in Celestial Blue porcelain, first created over 250 years ago in 1752, is mounted perfectly into the motif. Since it’s the Holiday season, nothing would make it more meaningful than to have it personalised, whether you want a message, date, or name inscribed onto the back of the pendant – your wish is definitely the Maison’s command 😉 Celestial Blue this may be but there’s nothing blue about this Christmas if it’s this Vintage Alhambra right here is what your loved one is going to be unboxing 😉
