Van Cleef and Arpels butterfly necklace & other dazzling luxury jewelry
Van Cleef & Arpels necklaces are probably their most popular pieces of jewelry and the Van Cleef and Arpels butterfly necklace from their Fauna collection is just one stunning example. This delicate collection is created around symbols of luck and the beauty of nature. The Fauna Van Cleef jewelry collection includes earrings, necklaces, pendants, bracelets, clips and the exquisite Van Cleef butterfly ring which was love at first sight for me. Although most of their pieces are! One of the many things I love about Van Cleef, besides the quality and design is that you can build upon your collections over the years.

What’s in the Van Cleef Butterfly ‘Fauna’ collection
The Van Cleef and Arpels Fauna collection includes earrings, rings, necklaces, pendants, bracelets and clips. I’m wearing pieces from the Butterflies and Two Butterfly sub-collections. They’re dainty but still eye catching statement pieces that work for both the day and night.
The Van Cleef butterfly jewelry pieces I’m wearing:
- Van Cleef & Arpels necklace: The dainty Van Cleef and Arpels butterfly necklace is made from 18k white gold and diamonds.
- Van Cleef butterfly ring with 1.67 carats of 70 Marquise cut diamonds that make up the 2 butterflies. The ring comes in 1 size and squeezes to fit your finger perfectly. It’s such a stunning statement piece.
- Fauna Van Cleef butterfly earrings. These are another talking piece as they’re not a matching pair but contrasting. 1 earring is lapis lazuli and the other is sparkling marquise cut diamonds set in yellow gold.
