Van Cleef & Arpels Chapeau Chinois Ring 18k Gold Paris Opens Estate VCA Sz 52




Stylish estate Van Cleef & Arpels "Chapeau Chinois" ring crafted in 18 karat yellow gold (circa early 2000s).

Timeless and oh so chic, the "Chapeau Chinois" collection by Van Cleef & Arpels was originally created in 1931 for the Paris Exposition Coloniale Internationale, a fair that highlighted diverse arts and cultures. Van Cleef & Arpels, ever so ingenious, transformed a traditional Chinese hat to form the collection of bold, high polished and timeless jewels. The collection was re-launched in 2000 with the ring (the matching bracelet is also available for sale) belonging to the later revival series. The ring opens to accommodate a photo or keepsake. The medium rise ring (11mm - 0.43 inches) sits comfortably on the finger, a great ring for day or evening wear.

The ring is in very good condition and was recently lightly cleaned and polished.
