Van Cleef & Arpels | Possibly the prettiest diamond snowflake necklace in the World
Van Cleef & Arpels diamond snowflake necklace from their Snowflake classic high jewelry collection is the show stopping piece you’ll never want to take your eyes off of. I had fun playing with some of Van Cleef & Arpels classic high jewelry collection pieces which consists of the Snowflake, Flowerlace, Folis de Prés, À Cheval, Palmyre and Olympia collections. However, it was this masterpiece I fell in love with.
Whether you’re looking for a statement piece, the finest diamond jewelry or a luxury gift, you can’t help but not be entranced by these pieces. Van Cleef & Arpels classic high jewelry is made from the most exquisite and expertly sourced gemstones in very limited quantities. These are the pieces diamond dreams are made of.
Van Cleef & Arpels Classic High Jewelry includes necklaces, pendants, rings, bracelets, earrings, clips and watches. They’re the pieces you imagine on royalty and to be fair you need pretty royal pockets or Billionaire status to acquire these.
Since its founding in 1906, Van Cleef & Arpels has created timeless, feminine pieces that enhance the natural beauty of stones and the brilliance of metals. Classic High Jewelry is composed of various historic collections, such as Snowflake, Palmyre, À Cheval and Olympia.Van Cleef & Arpels

Van Cleef & Arpels Snowflake collection featuring the diamond snowflake necklace
The dazzling snowflake collection includes earrings, necklaces, rings, bracelets and clips. The Van Cleef diamond Snowflake necklace is crafted with 367 stones of varying sizes, weighing a total of 30.99 carats.
What I love about the snowflake diamond necklace besides the beauty of it is the attention to detail. The flexible design was one of the first thing I noticed. It’s designed to lay flat on your collarbone. The second thing I noticed was the discreet clasp that’s still strong enough to ensure this beauty stays in places.
The Van Cleef & Arpels diamond snowflake necklace is platinum and 18K white gold but it also comes in yellow gold if that’s more your style.
Is it an everyday piece? Definitely not. Is is an heirloom that will turn heads at your next charity event or gala? Most definitely but you better have a good safe at home to store it! I couldn’t stop looking in the mirror at it as it reflects light in the most dazzling way imaginable. It’s a classic style and show stopping piece like no other.
How much is the Van Cleef diamond snowflake necklace
The white gold and platinum diamond snowflake necklace is $420,000 excluding taxes. The yellow gold diamond snowflake necklace is $402,000 excluding taxes.
Van Cleef & Arpels Palmyre collection
Van Cleef Palmyre earrings with their 90 stones totaling 20.89 carats are a hefty pair of diamond earrings. Both in weight and price. They can be worn either for pierced or non pierced ears. The length isn’t for short necks but they definitely make you sit a little straighter and turn heads.
They’re more versatile than they might look. Whether they’re worn alone with jeans and a blazer, little black dress or gown or set against another piece from the Van Cleef Palmyre collection: Limited quantities available.
