fig.: The image shows one of three 'Ballerina' clips made of white gold (the dancer's body) and diamonds (which sparkle on the ballerina's shoes, bodice and ribbon skirt). The figure (70x30mm) looks like a moment of movement frozen for eternity. The three Ballerina clips are Van Cleef & Arpels' high jewellery tribute pieces to Benjamin Millepied's ballet 'Reflections', premiere on 23 May 2013 at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris.
