This French Estate bracelet by Van Cleef and Arpels creates the illusion of a platinum and 18K yellow gold wire twist, which seems to be an everlasting cycle of richness. The 105 brilliant cut diamonds, degradingly encrusted in 15 platinum curvatures, and the scaling of the mediate gold braids flaunt the rigorous intentness with which this piece of applied art is crafted. So in every way, this marvellous jewel signifies the care in which a romance truly can last forever.
