Van Cleef & Arpels celebrated its French style with a party, Une Journee a Paris (One Day in Paris), at the Four Seasons ballroom earlier this month.

Its newest collection of enchanting jewels was also put on show. The venue was transformed into a glossy version of the City of Lights, with a giant Eiffel Tower made of macaroon desserts and dancers from the Lido Revue lending their pizzazz.

Van Cleef & Arpels chief executive Stanislas de Quercize welcomed guests, along with Asia-Pacific managing director Benjamin Vuchot. Enjoying the event were Ronald Arculli, Pansy Ho Chiu-king, French Consul-General Jean-Pierre Thebault, and Anthony and Wendy Hotung.
