Van Cleef & Arpels Diamond and Platinum Cuff Links


Created by Van Cleef & Arpels Paris, these Art Deco platinum and diamond cuff links date from the 1930s. Each square, arched double link is bezel-set with two baguettes in opposing corners, divided by a central channel. Sleek and subtle with their white and gray palette, these cufflinks’ slanted platinum planes and mirrored diamond reflections create a visually compelling statement of the late Art Deco aesthetic.

In creating these bold cuff links, Van Cleef & Arpels' designers were responding to the art jewelers of the Union des Artistes Modernes, who called for sculptural work free of decoration, saying: “Ornament is excessive—get rid of it.”
