*I have had the privilege of selling some amazingly beautiful creations throughout the years, but in this post I want to focus on what I consider to be the highest honor during my jewelry and sales career, the sale of a ultra-rare Van Cleef & Arpels Diamond & Turquoise 20 Vintage Alhambra Motif Necklace created for the Princess Charlene of Monaco. This amazing, ultra-limited, creation was created by Van Cleef & Arpels (VCA) and inspired by the blue waters of Monaco. In addition, this creation was worn to the the inauguration of the VCA boutique by the Princess in Monaco herself!!
This VCA creation features 20 Alhambra Motifs; 10 turquoise stone Alhambra’s and 10 Alhambras set with the worlds finest and rarest IF to VVS1 diamonds. These diamonds are so amazingly brilliant in person, a photo or video cannot capture it, but there are photos for your enjoyment provided anyways to view here.
The creation was sold here on PrelovedTreasures.com through a private sale for an undisclosed amount to a heir and heiress who are truly American Royalty. This couple have been repeat customers of PrelovedTreasures.com and have collected many Van Cleef & Arpels creations over decades. The purchase made by the husband, was a present for his wife, the heiress, who is one lucky lady to say the least! A gift made for royalty!! A creation of pure magnificence sold by Preloved Treasures as an heirloom gift, with an exceptional design! A unique treasure now with an American Royalty couple and their heirs to come for centuries to come!
A little about this creation: the VCA Diamond & Turquoise 20 Vintage Alhambra Motif Necklace appraised at over $175,000 through a local non-biased jewelry boutique after it went through inspection by VCA confirming its authenticity. However, we believe the timeless beauty and rarety of the piece is worth far more!
