Innovating many notable jewelry designs since 1896, Van Cleef & Arpels has long been known for its minimalistic style. Their jewelry has been worn by style icons such as Farah Pahlavi, the Duchess of Windsor, Grace Kelly, and Elizabeth Taylor, among others. A Ludo Hexagone bracelet from Van Cleef & Arpels will be available in the upcoming Magnificent Jewels sale, presented by Christie’s. This particular piece first appeared in Van Cleef & Arpels’ collections in 1935. Its name, “Ludo,” is a reference to Louis Arpels, one of the founders of the jewelry house.
Among the other noteworthy highlights is a cattail brooch by Suzanne Belperron, one of the most influential Art Deco designers of the 20th century. As she created her signature style, Belperron’s work was rather distinctive from that of her contemporaries. Also offered in this sale is a diamond ring with an orange sapphire weighing 5.32 carats. Triangular-cut diamonds accent the sapphire on this Tiffany & Co. piece. With over 250 lots, the event also includes jewelry by Bulgari, Cartier, JAR, and Verdura.
