Created during an era when great craftsmanship still persisted, this glamorous bracelet belongs to Van Cleef & Arpels’ long tradition of playfully referencing the French mastery of textiles and passementerie in precious metals and stones. Verger Frères was an essential partner to the Parisian jewelry maisons throughout the 20th century, providing superb execution for their house designs, and also supplying beautifully made jewelry after their own concepts.
