Van Cleef & Arpels Baguette magique clip, “Peau d’Âne raconté par Van Cleef & Arpels” collection
White gold, pink gold, round and baguette-cut diamonds, pink, purple and blue sapphires, onyx, one oval-cut purple sapphire of 3.64 carats (origin: Madagascar)
Following in the footsteps of the fairy clips that Van Cleef & Arpels began to create in the 1940s, the Baguette magique clip pays homage to Peau d’Âne’s godmother – the Lilac Fairy – who offers her magic wand to her young protégée. This object has special powers that can make the Princess’ chest appear at will. Magic wands of fairy tale clips appear early on in the Maison’s heritage.
