Valuing Your Van Cleef Jewellery
Our highly trained specialists consider many factors when valuing your Van Cleef & Arpels jewellery to ensure we provide you with the most accurate and up to date valuation. The most important factors are:
Style and Setting
Van Cleef & Arpels jewellery is famous for its use of the natural world in its jewellery, with rings, necklaces and earrings featuring flowers or leaf motifs. Rather than large gemstones, Van Cleef & Arpels use smaller stones in a sparkling cluster.
The brand, Van Cleef & Arpels, has been known to use platinum in its jewellery production, which will increase its valuation. While the brand uses precious stones in many of their pieces, they also include stones, like turquoise, agate and mother-of-pearl.
With over a century of fine jewellery production to its name, Van Cleef & Arpels has left an indelible impact on the jewellery market. It is remarkable that a rare and vintage piece could attract the same valuation as a modern piece in particular materials.
Van Cleef & Arpels’ pieces can often reflect the mood of the moment. This means that collections and pieces can move in and out of favour, which can affect the valuation. Always sought after, certain collections can ensure a strong valuation.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is Van Cleef and Arpels worth it?
Their jewellery may have a luxury price tag attached, but the pieces that they make can count on outstanding craftsmanship and a brand magic that only Van Cleef & Arpels generate. Their stellar sales price is reflected in their resale price, which can be invaluable for those looking to pawn or sell their jewellery.
Is Van Cleef made of real gold?
Van Cleef & Arpels only uses 18 karat gold in its production and marks its pieces with ‘750’ or ‘Au750’. The hallmark sits in different locations on each different style. For example, if you would like to check the authenticity of an Alhambra necklace, the hallmark will be found on the ring near the clasp.
What is the Van Cleef Mystery Setting?
A trademarked technique, developed by Van Cleef & Arpels in 1933, is the setting of diamonds or gemstones in a flowing line without any visible metal holding it in place. Stones are grooved and slid onto rails, one next to another. The rails create a lattice underneath a solid gemstone surface that appears to make the precious stones appear to be floating.
How can you tell a fake Van Cleef?
Authentic pieces are stamped with ‘Van Cleef & Arpels’ or ‘VCA’. With gold, you should also see the stamp, ’750’ or ‘Au750’, to reflect that the gold used in the piece is 75% pure and therefore 18K gold – the brand’s gold of choice. Van Cleef & Arpels in excellent condition, with its branded box and certified paperwork can be worth up to 50% of its purchase price.
What does Van Cleef Alhambra mean?
The Alhambra design is an integral part of the Van Cleef and Arpels brand and brings together nature’s influence in a four-leaf clover shape and the traditional Moorish quatrefoil. Thought to be named after the Moorish Alhambra Palace in Granada, Spain, the design mirrors the palace’s archway.
