On the occasion of the exhibition“India. Jewels that enchanted the world“, which is organised in the Kremlin Museum until July 2014, the Van Cleef and Arpels boutique located in one of Moscow’s most beautiful shopping streets, Stoleshnikov Lane, is offering you a showcase of pieces inspired by the East and India, and made by the house.
From April 9 to the end of May, you are invited to come and admire creations inspired by India and the Orient. At the same time, drawings and archives will also be accessible in the Moscow showcase of this great French jewellery house. These include those made for the Maharani of Baroda. Indeed, this lover of jewels and gems ordered more than three hundred pieces from Van Cleef and Arpels!
