Boogie-Woogie bracelet, rose gold, diamonds. Legend of diamonds, White diamond variations collection, Van Cleef & Arpels. - Van Cleef & Arpels

The Boogie-woogie bracelet's graphic lines are reminiscent of the Maison's archival designs from the late 1930s through the 1940s, when jewelry embraced sumptuous shapes. Particularly evocative of the creations with large gold links whose size contrasted with the pieces' flexibility, the bracelet plays on the interweaving of half-circle motifs that are carefully linked together.

Alternately positioned flat, like a festoon, or in relief along the curve of the wrist, motifs trace a mosaic of light that alternates between solid blocks and negative space. On each element, the round or oval center diamonds are set symmetrically, giving the piece harmonious balance.
