Quatrefoil

The Vintage Alhambra from Van Cleef & Arpels is finally a part of my jewelery collection! I've wanted this single mother of pearl clover piece for a while now, so classic and simple and looks good alone or worn with a cluster of several necklaces. The quatrefoil shape itself is adorable and even outside of the VC&A context I love it! Over the summer when I was starting to furnish my apartment I found this small occasional chair by Hickory Chair with the clover shape and I had one custom made with dark purple silk and an ivory frame.




And I still don't understand why Heidi Klum would create a jewelery line featuring the quatrefoil when it's synonymous with an already established jewelery label. ???. She got sued but I'm not sure what the outcome of that was.
