Timeless Design


Dear Readers,

As many of you know, I adore diamonds, gems, crystals–just about anything that sparkles and makes a statement.  I’m also a big fan of mother nature, which is why I have always enjoyed the designs of Van Cleef and Arpels.  In my humble opinion, the design house does a magnificent job of of incorporating fantasy, nature, and elegance into timeless pieces that are classic, yet remain relevant as they are passed from one generation to the next.

I was recently made aware the house is showcasing  over 400 dazzling designs which will be displayed at Arts Décoratifs in Paris from now through February.  I personally would love to view the exhibition as it’s always wonderful to see how the eye of design has changed over the years.  Would you?

Today, I would like to ask you what  designers inspire you and why? Also, how do you think design has changed over the years?
