This story starts in 1898, when a woman named Estelle Arpels married Alfred Van Cleef. Both Van Cleef and Arpels came from families with an interest in the gemstone business. After getting married, Estelle, Alfred, and Estelle’s brother Charles set up a diamond-dealing business in a second floor office at 34 Rue Drouot in Paris. The business grew quickly and the company moved to 22 Place Vendome, opposite the famous Hotel Ritz, the boutique currently still resides here.  Over the decades, Van Cleef & Arpels went on to open a multitude of stores all over the world winning accolades.

It was later taken over by Richemont Group in 1999. The Richemont group is a Swiss based tobacco and luxury company, they own some of the worlds leading luxury brands such as Piaget, Cartier, Montblanc, Net-a-Porter and many more!
