In Van Cleef & Arpels’ High Jewelry collection Les Voyages Extraordinaires™, the Makis set celebrates the fauna and flora of Africa. Full of colors and contrasts, creative shapes and exceptional stones, this set depicts a lively scene from African life. It is comprised of a necklace, a pair of earrings, and a ring. The unique necklace is adorned with a central tourmaline of 21.74 carats in a deep red color. It is punctuated by three flower motifs, each holding a star sapphire in its heart - one blue, one pink and one purple. Clusters of precious materials present a vivid palette of sparkling colors: they include bead- and pear-shaped emeralds and sapphires, as well as fine multicolored pearls embellished with round diamonds. Mischievous lemurs hang from the flowers, revealing their cheeky diamond silhouettes.
