With the support of

Founded in 1906 at Paris’ Place Vendôme, the High Jewelry Maison Van Cleef & Arpels has remained faithful to a highly distinctive style characterized by creativity, enchantment, artistic sensibility and poetry. Its collections have notably been influenced by dance, with the emblematic ballerina clips born in the 1940s. This inter-disciplinary dialogue was reinforced by a decisive encounter with George Balanchine. In 1967 in New York, the well-known choreographer presented the ballet Jewels, inspired by the emeralds, rubies and diamonds he had admired in Van Cleef & Arpels’ Fifth Avenue boutique. Today, these cultural affinities endure in new collaborations between the Maison and the world of dance. The FEDORA – VAN CLEEF & ARPELS Prize for Ballet symbolizes the Maison’s constant commitment to creativity and bears witness to its support for choreographic art, by encouraging new talents.
