Turquoise Turquoise is a semi-translucent to opaque aggregate mineral that ranges from the highly desirable robin's egg blue to sky blue to green. Turquoise can feature dark recessed markings, known as matrix, that are remnants of its host rock. Turquoise is one of the most ancient and universal gemstones, found in ancient Egyptian, Chinese and Aztec jewelry. Turquoise is the December birthstone and the 11th anniversary stone.

Cabochon A cabochon is a gem which has been shaped and polished but not faceted, typically with a domed top and flat bottom. Cabochons are often cut for opaque stones, for softer translucent gems as well as to highlight phenomenon such as asterism “star” and chatoyancy “cat’s eye”, as these would not show in faceted stones. The 'sugarloaf' cabochon cut features a 4-sided pyramid shape.

Lapis Lazuli Lapis Lazuli is a vivid blue aggregate rock detailed as far back as the bible and celebrated by the Romans for its vibrant color. Lapis is mostly lazurite, calcite and pyrite and can range from greenish blue to violet blue, often with gold flecks caused by the pyrite present in the rock.

Inlay Inlay is the technique of applying thin gem material or metal to create decorative details on the surface of a base gem, bone, metal or wood material. Marqueterie is inlaid veneers placed together to form a design or picture.

Van Cleef and Arpels Established in 1906, Van Cleef and Arpels has maintained its flagship in the Place Vendôme in Paris ever since. Known for iconic motifs including flowers, animals, and fairies, the house has designed for the Duchess of Windsor, Grace Kelly, Elizabeth Taylor and Eva Peron, among many others.  VCA won the grand prize at the International Exposition of Modern Industrial and Decorative Arts in 1925 and established itself as one of the leading houses of the Art Deco period. In 1933, VCA patented its "Mystery Setting,” a technique where each stone is faceted onto invisible gold rails less than two-tenths of a millimeter thick. Each mystery setting can require 300 hours of work per piece or more, and only a few are produced each year. Signature collections include Alhambra, created in 1968.
