Museum Circle members are invited to a reception and screening of “Van Cleef & Arpels Treasures and Legend,” a film written and narrated by Vincent Meylan that explores a century in the history of one of the most prestigious Parisian jewelry dynasties; revealing the mysterious and sometimes fantastic stories of its clients and the fabulous and exceptional stones that they entrusted to the “golden hands” of Van Cleef & Arpels.
The author of the book that the documentary is based on, Vincent Meylan, will be present. Mr. Meylan is one of the editors of the French society magazine Point de Vue. He has written numerous books about jewelry and is one of the very few who know most of the secrets of the Place Vendôme and the royal treasures of Europe.
