PARIS: Van Cleef & Arpels

Founded by a husband and wife team way back in 1906, Van Cleef & Arpels has produced some of the most beautifully innovative jewelry in the world. From now until February, Paris’ Les Arts Décoratifs Museum presents L’art de la Haute Joaillerie, a selection of over 400 stunning pieces, in addition to drawings and business documents chronicling the house’s storied history. Pioneers of the invisible setting and inventors of the Minaudière, Van Cleef & Arpels’ contributions to fashion cannot be overstated, so if you’re in Paris and want some super-sparkly inspiration, be sure to check out this gorgeous exhibit.
