For some serious eye candy, head to “Set in Style: The Jewelry of Van Cleef & Arpels,”
an exhibition of more than 350 jewels, objects and timepieces, opening Friday at the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum
. The legendary design house, which opened on Place Vendôme in Paris in 1906, is one of the world’s most innovative and influential jewelers. Don’t miss the 1937 “Peony” brooch; its mystery setting, a Van Cleef hallmark, is one of the house’s major contributions to jewelry design.
