In today’s post I wanted to have a closer look at Van Cleef look alike jewelry pieces. This iconic brand was founded over a hundred years ago in Paris, and their timeless designs include fairies, animals, floral motifs and most notably, the clover.  The designs of Van Cleef & Arpel can cost anywhere from $1500 to, well, millions of dollars.

The most easily recognisable designs from Van Cleef & Arpels, such as the Alhambra necklace, often cost between $5000-$60,000, depending on the materials used in the design process. This is why it doesn’t come as a surprise that the jewerly has been worn by the creme de la creme of society, including the likes of Duchess of Windsor, Grace Kelly and Elizabeth Taylor. van Cleef & Arpels could also be seen in the highly popular TV-series gossip girl, and with good reason – socialites and wealthy individuals are the target clientele of this brand!

However, if you’re after the same look as Van Cleef but don’t really fancy paying up a year’s salary for some nice looking eye candy, there are plenty of options to go with. Most high street retailers such as Swarovski and Wolf & Badger offer high quality pieces that look very similar to the Van Cleef & Arpel pieces, but are much more budget friendly.

If Swarovski is still a little nit out of your budget, don’t fret. There are a lot of brands that offer sterling earrings and necklaces that fall in the under $50 category – some even go as low as $20! After all, the clover motif that Van Cleef & Arpel is so famous for hasn’t been trademarked and is free to use by other retailers, and thank goodness for that!

If you have the money to buy jewellery that  is worth more than $1500, hats off to you! However, I would personally be afraid to wear anything as expensive as that in my ears, around my neck or on my fingers. Do you remember the iconic Kimmy K moment when she lost her earrings in the ocean? Yeah….. it would suck if that happened to you, right!

Anyhow, if you’re looking for Van Cleef look alikes, here are some of the best ones that I could find online at this time.

As I mentioned, Van Cleef & Arpels are most famous for their clover design. These simple studs are the most recognisable earrings in Van Cleef collection, and the look alike jewellery is as stunning as the real thing. All of these earrings are made of sterling silver, so they won’t cause any allergic reactions to those who suffer from sensitive skin.

Although the studs are Van Cleef’s best sellers, they also produce many statement earrings, such as these dangly black and gold earrings. The design of these earring is quite simple, so you can wear them both during night and day to add a little bit of glam to any outfit.

As beautiful as the original Van Cleef & Arpel earrings are, I firmly believe that it’s best to test out how much you exactly love a pair of designer jewellery by buying a look alike pair before hand, especially when the jewellery is as expensive as Van Cleef’s. This way you’ll know if you really are getting your money’s worth with the purchase!

More Necklaces

Van Cleef has many different necklace designs, however the most famous one is the long Alhambra necklace with many little clovers on it. The necklace comes in a variety of colors, so there is something for everyone.

Those that prefer a simpler necklace might like the Alhambra pendant more – this is a simple statement necklace that goes together well with a variety of outfits, and can be used to elevate an every day outfit, or add some extra class to an evening look.

If you’re looking to complete a Van Cleef look, you might as well purchase a bracelet to compliment a pair of earrings or a necklace. Sadly, most of the bracelets that I found were only available in yellow gold, however if you wanted to find a silver or rose gold bracelet, I’m sure those will be abundant on the high street too.

If you’re looking for one of those bracelets, keep this page bookmarked as I will be adding new Van Cleef dupes when I find them!

Now it’s your turn to let me know – would you ever consider buying an authentic Van Cleef & Arpels piece, or would you rather spend the money somewhere else?

Personally, I wouldn’t mind receiving expensive jewellery as a gift, but I would probably never buy it for myself. I’m a bit of a clutz, so I wouldn’t be surprised if I somehow ended up losing the jewellery, and I know that I wouldn’t forgive myself so easily for it!
