When I think of the dancers jewelry Van Cleef Arpels I cannot but recall the emotion felt in 3 years when I wore my first Tutu! In 5 years I was in a ballet school, but after a little pink Tutu I had already changed my mind and I was passed to artistic gymnastics. But that’s another story. If the dancers become subject of fine jewelry is clear that I must speak.

Van Cleef & Arpels this year has collaborated on a show of classical dance: Reflections.
