Accompanied by a Van Cleef & Arpels Certificate of Authenticity detailing that this is an authentic Alhambra piece of Van Cleef & Arpels' jewellery created in limited edition to celebrate the House's 100th Anniversary.

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. Alhambra jewels have adorned many celebrities including Grace Kelly, Romy Schneider, and Reese Witherspoon. Over the last five decades, the motif has been executed 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, this necklace symbolizes good luck.
