Jewellers extraordinaire Van Cleef & Arpels have just launched their new array of fine jewellery, revolving around the play of lines and colours. Named Bouton d’or, French for gold button, the new collection blends tradition and modernity by repeating the “Paillette” motif, which was revived from their 1939 archives.
The beauty of this collection lies in its versatility. While all the pieces are definitely black-tie-worthy, they can also be paired with a simple t-shirt and jeans combo for some much added sparkle to an outfit. The variety of colours gives you the chance to experiment and showcase the pieces in different, unexpected ways. With that in mind, we bring to you five different outfits paired perfectly with some Van Cleef & Arpels jewels.
Pretty in pink
Go a bit more feminine with your traditional office wear with lots of girly pink. Don’t be afraid to take this outfit for a night on the town as well, with those dazzling earrings and ring you can go with you anywhere you like.
Garden tea party
Enjoy a high-tea cucumber sandwich while showing off a dazzling ring. Go Parisian chic with a scarf around your neck, or wear it in your hair for a very “in” look while you sip your tea.
Date night with the girls
Hang out with your favourite ladies in this super cute but quirky outfit that shows off a stunning Bouton d’or necklace. Paired perfectly with an off-shoulder top, the colours all come together perfectly with this outfit.

Embrace a look that never went out of style with a sturdy denim jacket, perfect to take out on the streets (or in the malls). Pair it with a simple t-shirt for a look that never goes out of style, but elevate it with a chrysoprase and onyx pendant (which also transforms into a clip).
