Van Cleef & Arpels 18K Yellow Gold and Fine Natural Lapis Cufflinks
Van Cleef & Arpels 18K yellow gold and fine natural lapis back to back cufflinks. Secured by tightly woven bands of boldly textured 18K gold, the 4 stones of lapis all match well in their vivid blue color. Usually we see this cufflink in black onyx, so we were excited to find this unusual pair with lapis. Notice how the lapis is not flat but a high sugarloaf cabochon - giving them a three dimensional quality. These cufflinks are easy to put on with ample room for French cuffs. Signed and numbered, these vintage Van Cleef cufflinks are in fine condition.

Over the decades of our stewardship as a small but exemplary purveyor of the jeweler's art, we have strived to offer a fine and authentic selection, in excellent condition, of collectible jewels from all highly sought time periods at competitive prices and even lower prices, if possible. In the process we have had the extraordinary good fortune of meeting remarkable people - some collectors, others just extremely interesting individuals who have taken the time and effort to examine their lives and select things that tend to make them smile, or admire, or just wonder at the exciting endlessly creative and nuanced panoply of jeweled artifacts.
