Jean Dinh Van Cartier Cufflinks



Free Shipping and Returns


"The times they are a-changin.'" So sang Bob Dylan in 1964 and French jewelry designer, Jean Dinh Van*, agreed. Working for the House of Cartier during the1960s, he designed bold, contemporary pieces that reflected the Minimalism movement of the era. These sleek double-sided cufflinks exemplify that aesthetic. Rendered in 18K gold, their slightly domed geometric square shape is softened by rounded corners and a gleaming satin finish. Signed Cartier, Dinh Van. They measure 3/4 inch. * After spending 10 years producing designs for the famous House of Cartier, he started his own company in 1967. In the years that followed, his revolutionary styles caught on quickly and launched him to the forefront of the jewelry and fashion world. Known for a daring and free-spirited aesthetic, his designs are both timeless and modern. Both his original vintage works and contemporary pieces continue to delight jewelry lovers in the current day!

About Vintage Jewelry

Like fine wine, fine jewelry also has a “vintage”—the design period or era from which it hails. Victorian or Edwardian, Art Deco or Retro, each piece in our collection has its own special pedigree. But just because one era ended and another began, it doesn’t mean that creative jewelry makers simply forgot the lessons of the past! Many of the jewels in our cases refuse to conform to a single design period, either by striking out on their own or showing the transition from one era to the next. When such daring dazzlers are over one hundred years old, they’re generally grouped in the antique category. Anything younger than that, but still made before 1970, fits the vintage label. Every iconic era yields both singular and transitional pieces, like the ones we’ve assembled here. Follow the link at the end of each section for more about the aesthetics and history of the period.

Jewelry Care

As with anything of value, especially sentimental value, taking good care of your vintage and antique jewelry from Lang will enhance its beauty and extend its lifespan. We encourage you to have your jewelry checked and cleaned by us or by your trusted local jeweler every six months, to ensure that each piece is in good wearable condition with all gemstones in place. It’s not uncommon for stones to loosen over time, and it’s much easier to tighten a loose stone than to replace a lost one! As stated in our Repair Policy, we strongly recommend that you allow us to perform any repairs, since our jewelers are specialists in restoring vintage and antique jewelry.
