Van Cleef & Arpels: A Guided Walk through the Garden of Green
Hosted by Gem X Core Joanna Pollack, High Jewelry Marketing Manager at Van Cleef & Arpels, and Katie Rovanpera, Archivist at Van Cleef & Arpels
In the Hall of Gems at the @amnh, members explored the fantastical world of @vancleefarpels, Garden of Green. Led by @jmwheels and @malenkaya_katie, we traveled through time and shades of green learning the history and enchanting stories of each piece in the exhibition.
Some of which were on display for the first time in the US. Joanna and Katie enlightened us with the secrets of the Ballerinas, the Indian inspiration of the pieces created for the Maharani and Maharaja during the 1920’s, the playful design of the animal brooches, and the mastery of stones and stone setting to create the Mystery Setting. Each stone and story was just as fanciful as the next.
