God bless the pharaoh! He was to set the imagination of VCA and many jewel housesAs the treasures of the young king were brought to light, Van Cleef & Arpels jewellery was adorned with ibises, sphinxes and crouching scribes...the thousand mysteries of Egypt like in the Egyptian bracelets (1924) in platinum, sapphires, rubies, emeralds and diamonds, and the Egyptian buckle clip (1925) in platinum, rubies, emeralds, diamonds and onyx.
