3–5 Rue de la Paix, Paris, France

This Paris jewelry shop is a fantasy of pure luxury and understated glamour, an extravaganza of pale creams and beiges, gently curving display cases and opulent silk-covered furniture, all set off by sparkling chandeliers and, of course, many, many diamonds. The design by Patrick Jouin for this classic Place Vendôme address—the atelier of Van Cleef & Arpels since 1906—is textured and decorative, with elaborate wall moldings and carved wood paneling, playful acknowledgments of the building's stately formality.
