A one of a kind creation of 1938, the Passe-Partout sheds light on Van Cleef & Arpels’s taste for metamorphosis.
The Passe-Partout stands out for its avant-garde design and ingenious transformations. Presented among innovations at the New York World’s Fair under the slogan "Dawn of a New Day," it epitomizes the "jewel of tomorrow".
The Passe-Partout demonstrates the Maison’s ingenuity. With a hidden rail system, the tubogas structure slides to transform the jewel. Necklace, choker, bracelet, belt or clip, its metamorphoses embody the taste for transformation dear to Van Cleef & Arpels.
With its modern design, the Passe-Partout is entirely flexible and follows the body’s contours. Made of mets reminiscent of large industrial metal pipes, its tubogas structure reflects the dynamism and aesthetics of the time.
The Passe-Partout is adorned with a detachable clip. Set with blue and yellow sapphires, rubies, emeralds or diamonds in bouquets, the clips bloom with refinement and sparkle with elegance.
