Treasure Of Rubies
The heart of the earth beats with a treasure. Such is its rarity that Indians refer to it as “ratnaraj”—the king of gems. Like a sunbeam, it radiates with a burning light. Like a flower fringed with vermilion petals, it fascinates and beguiles.
Made up of 60 unique pieces, the Van Cleef & Arpels' High Jewelry collection Treasure of rubies showcases the beauty and majesty of the rubies. Much sought-after, with their color of burning embers, rubies of exceptional quality are often even rarer than diamonds.
One of the collection’s major pieces, the Rubis flamboyant necklace presents a ruby of extraordinary quality, weighing more than 25 carats. In echo to its fires, 18 perfectly matched rubies - weighing up to 4 carats - adorn the necklace’s ethereal motifs.
Duo de diamants
In keeping with Van Cleef & Arpels’ cherished tradition of Pierres de Caractère, two impressive pear-shaped diamonds weighing 21.26 and 20.37 carats reveal their exceptional purity and whiteness on these earrings whose pendants are detachable.
Rubies – which Indians call “the king of gems” – do not reveal all their secrets at first sight. It takes time to discover and explore them, and penetrate their hidden depths.

An illustrator of nature since 1906, Van Cleef & Arpels here reinterprets the berries that dot woodlands in the summer. On diamond rings, bunches of rubies and white and pink diamonds evoke the delicious tones of forest fruits. This dreamlike design gives pride of place to an exceptional ruby of 18.12 carats.
The High Jewlery collection Treasure of rubies is an invitation to immerse the gaze in this precious material, a journey to the heart of color.
