We can mentally put this Art Deco diamond bracelet in the pile of pieces I’ve posted that I would really love to own above all others. (It is a large pile.)
I think the contrast of the clean, geometric lines of the diamond design and the fluid, articulated nature of the bracelet and the tassel is just perfect. I’ve been looking forward to sharing this one with you for a while.
The central circular-cut diamond collets of this Art Deco diamond bracelet alternate with twin hexagonal-cut diamonds, within a tapered, flexible border made up of baguette and brilliant-cut diamonds. Suspended from the main bracelet is a circular-cut diamond tassel, with sliding clasp.
This Art Deco diamond bracelet was made in 1922 and is signed Van Cleef & Arpels Paris, no. 2071.
Unsurprisingly for a Van Cleef & Arpels’ piece, the workmanship and design are thoughtful and careful down to the tiniest detail. I think it is perfect.
