A classic vintage gold bracelet by Van Cleef & Arpels c.1969, designed as a heavy flattened curb link chain in 18ct yellow gold, to a concealed tongue and box clasp with safety catch. The uniform links have a polished finish and are all beautifully articulated so the bracelet is incredibly flexible and feels almost fabric-like. It has a bold look and a substantial weight which is lovely to wear and the bracelet is wonderfully smooth against the skin. The curb link chain bracelet has been a stylish accessory for decades and some of the most glamourous women in Hollywood history, including Greta Garbo and Katherine Hepburn, had a penchant for them. This is a particularly chunky example and would suit both men and women looking for a statement bracelet that works as well worn alone as it does with others.

Joanna Hardy says: "This is a great chunky bracelet that would look great worn by a man or a women, made by one of the best chain makers George Lenfant who supplied all the main jewellery houses with various chain designs and whose work is very sought after by jewellery connoisseurs. "
