Van Cleef & Arpels
Opened in 1906, Van Cleef & Arpels’ first boutique still occupies the same spot in the elegant Place Vendome. Designed by Patrick Jouin, the luxurious shop features a palate of creams and beiges, gently curving display cases, silk-covered furniture, and sparkling chandeliers. The legendary watchmaker and jeweler is known for its masterfully crafted pieces and innovative techniques, including "mystery settings," wherein the prongs are concealed beneath the gems they hold. In addition to timepieces and jewelry, the shop also carries fragrances.
