Dinh Van celebrates 40 years of its iconic handcuffs with limited-edition necklaces
Jun 14, 2016
The jewelry house will continue to celebrate the 40th anniversary of its iconic "Menottes" collection this summer with four new limited-edition necklaces, finished with exceptional stones from all over the world.
Last year, Dinh Van celebrated five decades of existence in the selective world of jewelry making with a whole range of pieces paying homage to the brand's signature style. In 2016, the brand is celebrating the 40th anniversary of its "Menottes" - or handcuffs - one of its most bold and distinctive designs that has gained iconic status the world over.
Originally used as clasps on strings of pearls, the Dinh Van handcuffs have become an emblem of the jewelry house. A symbol of union, love or friendship, the "Menottes" now take center stage in a collection of four necklaces finished with bright, colorful stones.
Dinh Van has carefully selected four types of stone, each with its own distinctive, bright color. The azure blue of Lapis-Lazuli, for example, contrasts with yellow gold handcuffs (€5,000, approx. $5,642), while the flamboyant red of Mediterranean coral is matched with rose gold handcuffs (€5,000, approx. $5,642).
The sea green shade of Australian Chrysoprase comes with white gold diamond-encrusted handcuffs (€7,500, approx. $8,462).
The final piece in this anniversary collection is a necklace of lightly marbled white beads. Here, Dinh Van has chosen Howlite stones with white gold and diamond handcuffs (€6,500, approx. $7,334).
