Authentic 20 motif necklaces have breached $52k at auction. Questionable examples offered online are priced between $40-50k. I hope not to offend Van Cleef & Arpels collectors when I state that the quintessential elegance of the 10 motif necklace in Lapis is unsurpassed by any other Arpels creation to date. It is THIS necklace that propelled VCA to greatness. The 10 motif necklaces in Lapis are so rare that one has not made it to auction in the better part of a decade. Rare, as a term, is used far too often in fashion. If rare was the ocean this Alhambra set would be your swimming pool.

About this item.

We are pleased to offer this exceptional and authentic Alhambra suite exclusively here on Tradesy. This 10 motif necklace dates circa 1970's and more than likely earlier than that. It is the earliest Alhambra necklace we have personally ever seen. At some point in its life this necklace had 2 motifs expertly removed and converted into stud earrings (pictured & included). The alteration is invisible to the naked eye and the "serenity" of the necklace is actually improved with this modification. The necklace kisses the collar bone at an overall length of 15.25." Motifs / charms measure at 15mm per.

The suite is properly hallmarked to one Motif (earring) (C)VCA 18k with serial number. Stud safety backs and modified posts are marked 14k.

This original set cannot and will not be separated. Necklace and pair of stud modified earrings are included. Early lambskin VCA necklace pouch also included. An unsurpassed offering here exclusively at Mylouis on Tradesy.

Excellent, vintage condition with light signs of use: patina to gold, very superficial scratching to metal and stone motifs. Ranked overall excellent condition.

We will have the item professionally photographed and updated over the next several days if the item has not already sold. The photographs obviously do not do the piece justice. It is absolutely stunning. Overnight FedEx delivery worldwide.
