Van Cleef & Arpels

A Vintage 18ct Gold Heavy Curb Link Bracelet

A classic vintage gold bracelet by Van Cleef & Arpels c.1969, designed as a heavy flattened curb link chain in 18ct yellow gold, to a concealed tongue and box clasp with safety catch. The uniform links have a polished finish and are all beautifully articulated so the bracelet is incredibly flexible and feels almost fabric-like. It has a bold look and a substantial weight which is lovely to wear and the bracelet is wonderfully smooth against the skin. The curb link chain bracelet has been a stylish accessory for decades and some of the most glamourous women in Hollywood history, including Greta Garbo and Katherine Hepburn, had a penchant for them. This is a particularly chunky example and would suit both men and women looking for a statement bracelet that works as well worn alone as it does with others.
