A striking VCA bracelet from the Chapeau Chinois collection, made of 18k gold.

The Chapeau Chinois collection was first presented to the public in 1931. The brand created it for the Paris Exposition Coloniale Internationale, a fair that was dedicated to the world’s art and culture. VCA’s designers were inspired by a traditional Chinese hat which they embodied in high- polished gold. This particular bracelet belongs to a re-launched collection in 2000.

Shiny, bright lined up “hats” look absolutely stunning on a wrist. The pointy tops create a great play of light. This VCA bracelet is as unusual as it is elegant and chic. The bracelet comes in an original VCA pouch which makes it a perfect gift for the fraction of the retail price.

    About Van Cleef & Arpels Brand

    Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry has been worn by celebrities and royalty since the first boutique opening in 1906. Being founded by a daughter of a precious stone dealer and a son of a stone cutter, Estelle Arpels and Alfred Van Cleef, the brand was meant to be big in the jewelry world. Press used to call the power couple union  “The Maison based on love”

    Even before Art Deco was pronounced as a style, VCA brand was known for their skillfully made, bold geometric pieces. Later, during the century, the maker mastered this design approach to the top notch jewelry level. The experimental spirit, fearless usage of the exotic materials and truly unique gemstone combinations brought Van Cleef & Arpels to the top three Maisons of the jewelry world.

    About French Jewelry

    Vintage French jewelry is highly valued by jewelry experts and enthusiasts. Since the late Renaissance, France has been established itself as one of the world trendsetters in art and fashion. A quick look at the Top Five French jewelry designers — Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, Hermes, Chaumet, Chanel — describes French level of greatness even better.

    What allowed France to reach such a high level in the jewelry world hierarchy? In a nutshell, it’s because of the apprenticeship system. In the beginning of 1950s in France anyone at the age 14 could start learning the craft. This way French jewelers, like no others in the world, gain a substantial portion of experience at the early age. Even non-designer jewels were produced by the high skilled masters.

    Modern jewelry is not handcrafted anymore, and mass market-oriented production is prevailing. Jewelry designs are streamlined to use as less hand labor as possible. That’s why today vintage French jewelry is in such high demand. Nadine Krakov Collection offers the most desirable vintage jewelry online made by French experts.
