Accenting a gracious curve or framing a stone in the 1920s, golden beads became a motif in their own right as of 1948. They radiate a delicate glow, instilling joyful energy into Van Cleef & Arpels’ poetic creations.
Inspired by a perfectly round setting, golden beads grew increasingly abundant as of 1948 to form the Couscous and Bagatelle pieces. These generous, playful creations combine gleaming yellow gold with colored precious stones or sparkling diamonds.
