Van Cleef & Arpels Paris Late-20th Century Diamond Sapphire and Platinum ''Camilia'' Earrings

A pair of Mid-20th Century platinum "Camélia" earrings with diamonds and blue sapphires by Van Cleef & Arpels. The camellia flower earrings set with 36 sapphires, approximate total weight of 3.60 carats, and 86 round diamonds with an approximate total weight of 3.90 carats, F-G color, VVS-VS clarity. Made in France, sold at Van Cleef & Arpels, New York. These striking flower earrings with highly three dimensional shaping are a modern interpretation of the iconic Asian flower which had so captured the European imagination in the 20th century, According to Évelyne Possémé, head curator at the Musée des Arts Decoratifs, Paris, "At the same time as the Indian influence, a rather more classical vein was still found in earrings such as the Camellia clips, leaves composed of bead and prong-set rubies (and sapphires) and diamonds," Earclips of the same design as these, with rubies and diamonds, are pictured in Van Cleef & Arpels: L''Art De La Haute Joaillerie, by Évelyne Possémé, Les Arts Decoratifs, 2013, page 187. The French love affair with the camellia was sparked around 1800, when Empress Josephine Bonaparte began cultivating them in her palace garden at Malmaison. The conspicuous, opulent flower was quickly adopted by French fashionistas as a corsage ornament signifying love. More than the Empress herself, however, the passionate aficionado of the camellia was the romanti ... c and mysterious Parisian courtesan Marie Du Plessis. While still in her late teens, Du Plessis was widely regarded a woman of beauty, intelligence, and wit. Self educated in literature and philosophy, discreet and private by nature, "La Dame aux Camélias" inspired Alexandre Dumas fils, Franz Liszt, and sundry aristocrats to throw themselves at her feet, and she gathered one of the great intellectual salons of the day at her home in Paris. When she died at just 23 years old, her history was immediately altered by Dumas to fit the old narrative of the fallen woman who redeems herself through self-sacrificing love for a younger man. A recent biographer, delving into the facts of Du Plessis'' brief, exceptional life, demolished most of Dumas'' fictions, but apparently her obsession with the extravagant flower was all too real: an intriguing file of Du Plessis'' rediscovered papers includes "numerous eye-popping bills" from the luxury Parisian florist who satisfied her boundless passion for red and white camellias.
