An iconic example of Van Cleef & Arpels designs from the 1920s, this choker necklace, created in 1928, is make up entirely of baguette, marquise and brilliant-cut diamonds. The piece’s singularity lies in the blend of patterns created by stones of various cuts. Composed of seven triangles connected by diamond-set rings, the design echoes the geometric and symmetrical lines that wee characteristic of the Art Deco movement. Its flexible, articulated structure and discreet settings accentuate the gleam of the precious stones, imbuing the piece with extraordinary lightness.
