Van Cleef & Arpels Beautiful Jewellery 2012

80

Necklace and earrings, Van Cleef & Arpels, Paris, 1949–50. This impressive
suite of jewellery was designed by Jacques Arpels for Sita Devi, the second
wife of Maharaja Pratapsinh Gaekwad of Baroda. She provided the remarkable
set of carved and cabochon emeralds from the Baroda treasury. The symmetry
of the necklace and earrings is testament both to the skill of the jeweller and
the quality of the stones.Van Cleef & Arpels Beautiful Jewellery 2012.
