In its century-long exploration of their high art, Van Cleef & Arpels often wittily refers to the inseparable connections between couture and jewelry. Here, the gold bands that create a cross-hatch pattern on the ring's domed surface are woven over and under each other, like the warp and woof of fine textile.
