Legendary Design
Legend has it that thousands of years ago lived an immortal firebird with precious stones on every single feather, and when he realized it was time for him to die, he would burn himself only to be resurrected again. Characterized by designs rich in heritage, Gilan brings the opulence of the ancient history to the summer of 2010. The dazzling necklaces and earrings draw inspiration from the age-old phoenix tales of immortality. You will be spoilt for choice between the collection’s 40 pieces embellished with diamonds, drop-shaped emeralds set in white gold.

Spirit of Beauty
What could be more magical than a fairy adorned with rubies, diamonds and emeralds? This precious icon reflects the refined and opulent taste of a century of Van Cleef & Arpels designs which were celebrated with a grandiose exhibition at the Mori Arts Center in Japan last year. For this season, the legendary jewelry brand introduces a special set of editions inspired by its Alhambra motif. Studded with motifs of different sizes either in openwork gold or in natural grey and white mother-of-pearl with a pearly white gold contour, this limited edition necklace constitutes a signature in understated elegance.

A diamond-studded Amore ring conveys beauty and encapsulates passion with which it was made - much like a work of art.
