San Diego consumers don’t only take advantage of pawnbrokers to get cash loans on fine jewelry. More and more people are visiting pawn shops to look for deals on designer jewelry that is up for sale. If you are lucky, you might just run across a piece from that legendary brand Van Cleef & Arpels.

The history of Van Cleef & Arpels stretches all the way back to 1896, when company co-founders Estelle Arpels and Alfred Van Cleef got married. In 1906 Alfred joined forces with his brothers-in-law Charles and Julien Arpels to establish the jewelry company at the now famous site 22 Place Vendôme, Paris, France. Since that time Van Cleef & Arpels has been a trend-setter in jewelry design, competing against other legendary brands, such as Cartier and Tiffany, for awards and public recognition. The company opened its first boutique in New York in 1942, and now more than 45 Van Cleef & Arpels boutiques are in operation around the world.

Whether it is set in gold or platinum, the diamond jewelry of Van Cleef & Arpels never ceases to enchant and delight wearers. If you are fortunate enough to come across a piece from this brand at a San Diego pawn shop you can be assured that the person you give it to will adore it and treasure the jewelry for years to come–while it likely also increases in value.
