Brief History of Van Cleef & Arpels

Founded in 1896 by Alfred Van Cleef and his father-in-law, Salomon Arpels, Van Cleef & Arpels has become synonymous with luxury and sophistication in the world of fine jewelry. Known for their craftsmanship and innovative designs, Van Cleef & Arpels gained fame with their patented “Mystery Set” technique, a method that allows for the setting of gems without any visible prongs.

Over the decades, Van Cleef & Arpels has adorned royalty, celebrities, and lovers of fine gems across the globe. Their pieces, often inspired by the natural world and fairy tales, continue to enchant with their elegance and creativity.

How to Spot Fake Van Cleef & Arpels Jewelry

Authenticating Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry can be challenging but knowing a few key indicators can help ensure you are purchasing or selling the real thing. Here are some tips:

  1. Hallmarks and Signature: Genuine pieces are always marked with the brand’s signature and a unique serial number. Familiarize yourself with the Van Cleef & Arpels logo and check for any discrepancies in the font or alignment.

  2. Quality of Craftsmanship: As a high-end jeweler, Van Cleef & Arpels ensures each piece is crafted to perfection. Mismatched components, rough edges, or imperfect alignments are signs of counterfeits.

  3. Materials: Authentic pieces are made from high-quality metals and gemstones. If the material looks or feels cheap, it’s likely not genuine.

  4. Documentation: Original receipts, certificates of authenticity, and original packaging can also be indicators of an authentic piece.

If you’re unsure about the authenticity of a piece, bring it to us at First Class Jewelry & Loan. Our experts are well-versed in high-quality brands like Van Cleef & Arpels.
