Jewelry Flashback: Cate Blanchett – ‘Set in Style: The Jewelry of Van Cleef & Arpels’

Cate Blanchett demonstrated simple elegance at its best.  Wearing the Passe -Partout necklace from Van Cleef & Arpels, this necklace was one of the first transformative pieces of jewelry that Van Cleef & Arpels pioneered. It is comprised of a series of metal rails that allows the flexible gold snake chain to slide in and out transforming the piece into a necklace, bracelet, belt or in Cate’s case a choker -February 16, 2011 – New York City.
