Powerful symbols of joy and hope, fairies and ballerinas are an enduring tradition at Van Cleef & Arpels. Touched with ethereal grace, these emblematic feminine figures evoke the Maison’s enchanting world.
A protective muse and symbol of femininity, a fairy watches over the Poetry of Time in her sapphire and diamond dress. Her wings made of turquoise plique-à-jour enamel echo the nuances of the starry sky, crafted in guilloché mother-of-pearl and set with diamonds.
Delicately sitting on a cloud, she points out the minutes with her magic wand thanks to a retrograde movement. The moon indicates the hours in a mother-of-pearl aperture, magnified by a gentle and soothing halo.
