Van Cleef & Arpels have described their style as having "an air of spontaneity with perfect mastery", governed by "an innate sense of proportion." 1980s designs such as this celebrated the decade's return to classical and pure lines and controlled curves, as well as the pleasure of wearing precious stone jewelry every day.
