Van Cleef & Arpels Paris 1960s Wood Bracelet

Created in 1968, this French 18K gold and dark carved wood bracelet was designed by Van Cleef & Arpels Paris. It is designed as circular dark wood links joined by textured 18K gold bars. Dramatically-contrasting, smooth, dark, matte-finished wood circles are unified thematically in this casually elegant bracelet with glowing gold bars with a textured wood-like grain, making for a witty and original VCA jewel.

Van Cleef & Arpels had been experimenting with wood in jewelry as early as 1916. Frequently VCA designers worked with amourette wood, a small flowering tree native to the northern coasts of South America.
