A convertible French 18 karat gold clip brooch with calibre-cut sapphires by Van Cleef & Arpels. The brooch, convertible into a set of three, is highlighted by channel-set lines of 22 calibre-cut sapphires with an approximate total weight of 2.90 carats. In this set of three-in-one convertible clips, Van Cleef & Arpels captures the spirit of the 1940s - curvaceous, streamlined, and intriguingly asymmetrical. The dynamic clips with their reverse curves, bound by lines of angular sapphires, are a jewelry echo of the avant garde sculpture of the period. A similar set of brooches, known as the "Joined Wave", is pictured in Set in Style: The Jewelry of Van Cleef & Arpels, p. 62, and was shown at the eponymous exhibition at the Smithsonian''s Cooper Hewitt in New York, in 2011.
