Van Cleef & Arpels' jewellery designed by Hokose, Japanese master

Jan '06
Van Cleef & Arpels conveyed that the timeless pieces of jewellery intended by Japanese master of lacquer, M. Hokose for Van Cleef & Arpels are on display at the jewellery house' boutique in the new Bur Juman Centre in Dubai until end January. The exhibition and window dressing in Dubai forms part of the limited edition collection's worldwide tour.

A great classic in the history of Van Cleef & Arpels jewellery, the butterfly clip has inspired a number of creations.

The famous Japanese master of lacquer, Hokose, has applied his ancestral craftsmanship in his own interpretation of the butterfly motif. He has engaged his artistry in these butterflies in wood or mother-of-pearl and bodies set with diamonds.

Eighteen exquisite pieces of delicacy and grace have come from the hands of this great artist. Their ethereal cameos of silver, dark red, grey, beige and gold and their traditional Japanese designs are marked by infinite elegance and create a subtle play of light and shade.

A numbered, limited edition work, the Butterfly Collection blends refinement and poetry with the celebrated and intricate arts of lacquer work and fine jewellery that originated in Wajima, Japan.

Mr. Hakose's workshop, which has been creating lacquered art since the 16th Century, uses a traditional lacquering method called 'urushi', dating back to the Edo period. The Edo era is a division of Japanese history running from 1600 to 1867. The Edo period is also known as the beginning of the early modern period of Japan.
