The articulation technique by Van Cleef & Arpels
Van Cleef & Arpels’ fine craftsmanship is demonstrated by the articulation technique.
The articulation is a jewelry innovation used to connect two jewelry decors and render the piece as supple as a piece of fabric, and comfortable against the skin.
The making of the Amphérès necklace with the articulation technique
The articulation provides flexibility for necklaces, bracelets and earrings. The smaller the motifs and the tighter the articulation, the more flexibility is gained.
OpArt Turquoise bracelet, Pierres de Caractère - Variations collection
The Maison has applied its sophisticated jewelry expertise to create the OpArt Turquoise bracelet: when worn, it reveals turquoise beads that are barely visible when the bracelet is open. Thanks to the invisible articulation by Van Cleef & Arpels, this playful bracelet can be laid completely flat, and feels wonderfully supple.
