Ever thine, Ever mine, Ever ours.
– Ludwig van Beethoven
Theirs is a love story that inspires modern-day fairy tales. And the fruit of their love is the magic spell that keeps these fairy tales alive after more than 100 years of their union.
Alfred Van Cleef and Esther Arpels — progeny of a diamond merchant and jewelry, respectively — fell in love and married in 1896. And by 1906, Van Cleef & Arpels was born right in the heart of Paris, the city of romance, at Place Vendôme. Since then, passion and craftsmanship have worked hand in hand to create exceptional jewelry that’s borne witness to countless enchanting love stories, including those of stars and royalty. And now, yours.
With Van Cleef & Arpels’ Bridal Collection — which includes solitaires like the Couture, Tête-à-tête, Romance and the new Perlée with matching wedding bands —the revered French jeweler is giving lovers around the world the gift of love and their very own version of happy-ever-after.
