The most exceptional jewels created in the 1970s were potent symbols of self-expression in an era defined by liberation and rebellion. No jewelry house better captured this progressive spirit than Van Cleef & Arpels. Producing pieces that were a sophisticated combination of informality and opulence, they embodied a new style of luxury for a younger, more fashion-conscious generation.
This elegant suite is a perfect example of their work from that time. Comprised of two long necklaces, each measuring 34” and a pair of matching ear clips, the pieces can be worn separately for a simple look or layered together for a dramatic statement. Elongated black onyx curb links are spaced by pairs of interlocking 18K gold curb links set with 204 round diamonds of approximately 10.85 carats.
The necklaces can be joined together to form an impressive single chain.
