I'm sorry, but this whole Van Cleef & Arpels Alhambra clover jewelry phase -- you know: that clover line that Heidi Klum knocked off for Mouawad and then got pissed off when everyone else knocked off her knockoffs AND Van Cleef & Arpels'? You've seen the necklace a billion, trillion times on Reese Witherspoon -- has got to end (and Marisa, if you're reading this, we love and miss you!). Don't get me wrong, Van Cleef & Arpels makes some of the most stunning pieces on the planet. (I especially love their vintage brooches). And maybe the Alhambra clovers had more meaning when they were first introduced by the company in the 1960s. But today, the ubiquitous clovers are just overly preppy and a bit of a snoooooooooooze. They're just so soccer mom-y, which I guess Reese sorta is but in a good way, because it's better than being a soccer mom in a Posh Spice way, right?
