Adding real life sparkle to everyday is Van Cleef and Arpels who is showcasing the pieces of renowned jeweller Lacloche at their School of Jewelry Arts in Paris. In addition to the innovative techniques and designs employed by the jeweller, the exhibition also explores the relationship between the pieces and those they were created for for a robust view of the Belle Époque period.
