The new Lady Duo de Lapins creation gives pride of place to some of Van Cleef & Arpels’ emblematic craft skills. Sculpture on mother-of- pearl brings to life a pair of rabbits, exchanging tender glances. Around them, a garden of emeralds, tsavorite garnets and pink sapphires is home to vegetation in plique-à-jour enamel. The sun – in guilloché and mirror-polished rose gold – spreads intense reflections, while a cloud in lapis lazuli adds to the tableau’s impression of depth. On the back of the watch, an engraved scene revisits the graphic lines of the dial, prolonging the touching spectacle.
