Van Cleef & Arpels Sapphire and Gold Wreath Cuff Links

$3,500

The twisting scrolled wreaths in these Van Cleef & Arpels mid-20th century double-sided gold cuff links, spotted with central blue sapphires, are thoughtfully nuanced and wildly attractive. The central square box-mounted round sapphire cabochon anchors the twisted gold's energy in a delightful design contradiction.

Made in France at the storied Parisian workshop of Van Cleef & Arpels on Place Vendôme, these cuff links are a thrilling amalgam of styles, making them challenging to date. It was in 1939 that Van Cleef & Arpels made the visionary decision to open their first New York location at the newly-inaugurated Rockefeller Center.
