Origin France
Period 1950-1999
Materials 18k Gold.
Creation Date 1972
Description A pair of French 18 karat textured gold "Chevalerie" earrings by Van Cleef & Arpels. The pendant hoop earrings designed with a complex geometric patterning that lends them significant visual interest. Circa 1972. Together with a letter of authenticity from Van Cleef & Arpels dated 14 February 2019. In the 1970s, Van Cleef & Arpels moved away from the gem-studded opulence of the post-war years and instead focused their efforts on creating dynamic forms out of precious metals. Inspired by the moon landing, simple, forms such as these earrings were modeled so as to appear "cratered." Important, too, as an influence was kinetic art, inspiring a new dynamism and sense of movement and patterning of the famed firm''s designs, strongly represented in these earrings. Voluminous but not overly heavy, the earpendants, with their unusual surface texture, represent a subtly different interpretation of the classic hoop design.
