Pégase necklaces - White gold, diamonds, emeralds, sapphires, an emerald-cut sapphire of 45.10 carats (Sri Lanka). Detachable clip.
Harboring a hidden symbol and an exceptional center stone, this transformable necklace blends the High Jewelry tradition with a playful touch of surprise. Hidden within the central pendant is a miniature gurine in white gold, depicting Pegasus. Depending on its wearer’s mood, the winged horse – a well-known creature from Greek mythology – can be kept secret, revealed to the world or suspended from a clip, along with two other detachable pendants.

In its center, the necklace gives pride of place to a 45.10-carat sapphire from Sri Lanka, a generous Pierre de Caractère™ that commands admiration. Thanks to its emerald cut, the eye plunges into its material as if into deep water, appreciating the quality of its crystallization and its intense “royal blue”, characteristic of the old mines.
From the stone selection to the crafting of the diamonds in situ, from the wax model of Pegasus to the intertwined lines of the necklace, this creation brings together High Jewelry’s most virtuoso savoir-faire. A feat accomplished by the Mains d’Or over more than 2200 hours at Van Cleef & Arpels’ workshops in Place Vendôme.
