VAN CLEEF & ARPELS Estate 18kt Diamond + Emerald Ladies Watch
An incredible and stunning diamond and emerald watch from the luxurious designer Van Cleef & Arpels! This vibrant 18kt yellow gold timepiece displays a classic and showstopping appeal, and is encrusted in fabulous gemstones along the face and band. Sparkling accent diamonds encircle the crystal covered watch face, which displays a cream colored background with black Roman numerals and dials, and the authentic "Van Cleef & Arpels" signature at the center. Four delicate emerald cabochons dot the ends of both hinges that hold the beautiful watch face to the band.
The band is comprised of three rows of open circle links, which connect together to form a straight but flexible design that wraps around the wrist. Adorning the center of each link is an alternating pattern of 38 prong set diamonds and 37 faceted emerald stones, all which appear to "float" at the center. All together, the bright diamonds weigh approximately 3.00ctw, sparkling brilliantly in the light with every turn. The stones look mesmerizing next to the rich green emeralds, which weigh approximately 2.00ctw combined, creating an overall luxurious appeal! The incredible design carries seamlessly around the wrist and fastens with a secure hidden push clasp, stamped on the back with a "750" gold purity mark, and a safety latch for extra security. Finishing the design is a simple watch dial on the side of the watch face, and stamped on the back are several hallmarks, including "18K" and "750" gold purity marks, "SWISS," and the Swiss hallmark of Helvetia with a "G" indicating its gold purity, and that parts were assayed in the Swiss city of Geneva. A fabulous timepiece by a legendary company, this watch makes a dazzling statement piece when worn and would be an incredible addition to any collection!
Measurements: The watch measures 7" long in total length and would likely fit a medium to average sized wrist. The watch face and diamond surround measures 1" in diameter, and is about 1/4" thick. The band measures a little more than 1/2" wide, and is 1/8" thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the watch is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the yellow gold setting. The diamonds and emeralds are all intact and securely set. The clasp and safety latch are in good working order, and at this time, the watch mechanics are in perfect working order and keeping good time.
