Diamond Essentials

Generations of Class and Style: Harry Winston
During the Christmas season near the end of World War II, Harry Winston was looking for ideas on how to showcase gems in a new and innovative way, when he was unwittingly inspired by the holly wreath hanging from his own front door. This serendipitous discovery led him to create a method which used the gems themselves to shape the jewelry by employing delicate multi-dimensional wire mountings, allowing the gems to appear to float on the wearer. That groundbreaking design, which is deftly utilized in this bracelet, is as iconic today as it was 75 years ago.

Always a perennial favorite among collectors of classic, wearable jewelry, Van Cleef & Arpels is forever top-of-mind when one needs a piece to “throw on” when dashing out the door, whether it be to run errands or to chair a gala event.

The varied style of Van Cleef & Arpels is aptly captured in this sale with the offering of great daytime jewelry such as the sleek pair of unusual tiger’s-eye and gold earclips, to the double hoop earrings which make the seamless transition from daytime to business, as well as the more formal ‘Flamme’ diamond brooch and sumptuous pair of diamond leaf brooches. Van Cleef & Arpels is truly essential to all of the facets of your lifestyle.
