Editor’s update Sept 20th 2021:
Here we have the first photo released of the Van Cleef & Arpels Holiday pendant 2021 set in rose gold. It will be released on Oct 1st worldwide and the price will be $3750. Limited quantities of course.
Although it is pink, it may not be what you are expecting…
For those in the know, Van Cleef & Arpels has been creating a limited edition Alhambra pendant each year since 2005.
Highly coveted and anticipated, the Alhambra Holiday Pendant is a special offering that collectors look forward to come the fall season. It is typically released in October and offered through to February, or while production and supplies last.
Rumours are flying on social media with speculation that this year’s holiday pendant will be lilac porcelain.
Confirmed by an official source, we have just learned that the pendant will, in fact, be created with a stone called ‘Rhodonite’.
A quick Google search shows us that the Rhodonite stone comes in a pink hue- perhaps a salmon/pinkish hue.
At this point in time, our sources could not confirm the type of gold the pendant would be offered in, however, we will update you as this information becomes available to us.
