Inspired by four-leaf clovers and meant to bring good luck, the Van Cleef & Arpels 'Alhambra' motif has been an easily recognizable symbol of the maison’s playful and charming style since 1968. Celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, the 'Alhambra' collection remains as stylish as ever for fashionable women around the world.

Pieces of the signature motif have adorned many celebrities including Grace Kelly, Romy Schneider, and Reese Witherspoon. Over the last five decades, the 'Alhambra' has been crafted in a variety of materials including gold, diamonds, coral, turquoise, and rock crystal. Like the four-leaf clovers that Jacques Arpels picked in his garden, these earrings symbolize good luck.
