Ancient Van Cleef & Arpels tiara features in Mirror, Mirror
In case you wanted to swoon over something other than Ryan Gosling, here’s a suggestion: an ancient Van Cleef & Arpels tiara (with a 116-year history they CAN brag about something ancient indeed).
The priceless masterpiece, made of gold and platinum and embedded an eye-popping, heart-raising caratage of diamonds, features in the upcoming Mirror Mirror film, a modern, yet allegedly comically feeble spin on the Grimm Brothers’ Snow White starring Lily Collins and Julia Roberts.

And if you’d like to see pieces like this from the Van Cleef & Arpels archive in the flesh, a trip to Shanghai in the Summer is a must. The Van Cleef & Arpels, Timeless Beauty heritage exhibition will showcase jewellery, watches, and precious accessories, as well as archive drawings and documents of the place Vendôme Maison in the Chinese city from May 20th to July 15th at the Museum of Contemporary Art.
