A bountiful assemblage of diamond and ruby blossoms appear in this ring by Van Cleef & Arpels from the mid-20th century. Each of the five-petal white diamond blooms centers on a round-cut ruby and are gathered together with the keenly-observed naturalism of a freshly-picked bouquet, imbuing this ring with a sense of overflowing joy.
