Last year marked the 50th anniversary of the Alhambra, the iconic design of Van Cleef & Arpels. In 1968, Jacques Arpels, inspired by popular decorative patterns, created a gold medallion shaped like a four-leaf clover. Challenging the notion that fine jewelry was only for formal evenings, the ready-to-wear concept of daytime jewelry has sustained over five decades. The design has been worn by fashion icons such as Princess Grace Kelly of Monaco, Lyn Revson, and Heidi Klum. Several Alhambra pieces are presented in the Holiday Fine Jewelry Signature Auction offered by Heritage Auctions.
Another highlight of the sale is a set of diamond and gold earrings by Bulgari. Set in 18 karat gold, the earring fuses the brand’s Italian heritage with contemporary minimalist design. Also featured in the sale is a floral brooch by Mario Buccellati that includes oval-shaped rubies and full-cut diamonds. Explore the full listings and register to bid online on Heritage Auctions.
