Van Cleef & Arpels Coral and Diamond Bombé Ring


This beautifully modeled, reeded dome ring from Van Cleef & Arpels has a playful arch of round brilliant-cut diamonds set in the center of two scalloped coral sections, recalling the glamour of the post-war period. Bombé, or domed, rings were a favorite of this flamboyant time, designed with exuberant forms and colors, and were sometimes worn several to a hand.
