Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.

An Exquisite Van Cleef & Arpels 18K Yellow Gold Diamond and Sapphire Clip Brooch

Circa 1940’s, this 18k yellow gold, sapphire and diamond clip by Van Cleef and Arpels virtually epitomizes the Retro period of jewelry that began following the start of WWII, after the art deco aesthetic of the 20’s and 30’s had come to an end. Platinum was used towards the war efforts, and yellow gold became popular in a period of design that began the less-is-more philosophy. This beautiful clip brooch features 3.00cts of blue sapphires, all square-cut and radiating out like a section of the sun from a gorgeous 2.00ct oval shaped diamond, accented by 1.10ctw of round diamonds. This is a brooch for anyone’s collection of fine sapphire jewelry.

At the height of Art Deco, it must have been an unusual design at the time to choose an orchid, which was one of the icons of the Art Nouveau period. The Art Deco features of this piece are the platinum setting with different cut diamonds: brilliant, pave, and baguette. The brooch is displayed at the Cooper-Hewitt.

The name Van Cleef & Arpels is synonymous with gorgeous and exquisite jewelry. Van Cleef & Arpels has been creating wondrous jewelry creations since 1896. Van Cleef & Arpels’ jewelry has been known for its fluid lines, graceful curves, color, and a sense of movement. They met at the end of the Nineteenth Century, Alfred Van Cleef, a precious stone-cutters’ son, and the young woman, Estelle Arpels, her father a leading precious raw gems merchant. It was Paris, 1895, a marriage between two deep loves, joining together two families and creating a business family that even now, after one hundred and eighteen years, shines resilient as the diamonds they’ve designed.  Van Cleef & Arpels is associated with quality and an elite style that has adorned the likes of Jacqueline Kennedy, Catherine Deneuve, Audrey Hepburn, and other timeless beauties.




 

 

 

Article_Innovations_The-Mystery-seta

Mystery Set refers to the unique technique associated with Van Cleef & Arpels ever since the Maison patented this dazzling invention in 1933. It consists of setting stones in such a way that no prongs are visible. The level of expertise required makes Mystery Set the exclusive realm of a very small number of master jewelers.

The technique is so intricate that producing a single brooch takes no less than 300 hours work. Each faceted stone is delicately inserted onto thin gold rails less than two-tenths of a millimeter thick. Once complete, the gems appear to be entirely free-standing. Because of the complexity of the process, Mystery Set pieces are extremely rare: the Maison produces no more than a few of them each year.
