Van Cleef & Arpels has launched a collection of high end jewels utilizing some of its finest gemstones that is iconic to the Van Cleef and Arpels name.  To coincide with Paris Fashion Week for autumn/winter 2014, Van Cleef & Arpels launched its 'Pierres de Caractère Variations’ by designer Alfredo Arias.  

100 pieces of jewelry were introduced with a theme divided into three thoughts that can be construed as fantasy, whimsical and good luck.

These incredible pieces focus on exceptionally rare and colorful stones. One of the highlights of the collection was the Oriental Princess necklace. It contains 42 volcano eruption-like rubies from Mozambique totaling more than 40 karats.

A piece of retro of a Van Cleef favorite reemerged with the Zip Elegance necklace. Encrusted heave handily with jewels, it was reworked from the original 1951 Van Cleef & Arpels design. Fastening like a real zipper, it is plastered with white cultured pearls, diamonds and further embellished by onyx and red coral. It’s versatile to take off the neck and wear as a bracelet too.

Van Cleef & Arpels stands as a leader of fine jewelry and has placed great significance on their gemologists by only sourcing the finest stones. They go beyond the criteria of cut, color, purity and carat size that many other jewelry houses would be satisfied with.   They look into the stones and imagine what they represent emotionally to a woman before being mounted into a design.
 
The authentic Chanel Cosmetic Vanity Case is slated as a stylish makeup case for all makeup acquired. However, it is versatile enough to discover other uses for it such as storing fine jewelry too. Think about how great it will look upon a vanity table and knowing that the jewels are accessible in a moment’s notice.

The vanity cosmetic bag is crafted in scrumptious black lambskin leather. The exterior is square in shape but is elongated vertically to assure plenty of space to hold a bottle of perfume or lotion. The front exterior contains the infamous CC logo embossed on it.  

There is a top handle that makes it easy to travel with. There is also a removable shoulder strap.

 A thick double exposed zipper in gold tone is near the top of the pre-owned Chanel cosmetic case and covers nearly the entire circumference. The two pulls leather and can attach together securely with the accompanying Chanel padlock and key.

The interior of this used case will easily store all beauty products and allow easy access to them whenever needed. It will organize makeup bottles, perfumes and toiletries nicely with elastic holders.

 There is plenty of room is left over in the authentic Chanel Cosmetic Vanity Case to keep items  such as a jewelry pouch within them safe and sound.
