Van Cleef & Arpels Paris Ruby and Diamond Bombé Ring
Created in the 1960s, this 18K gold and platinum bombé ring is set with rubies and diamonds. The high volume bombé form is set with fields of circular-cut rubies, interspersed with three arced lines of round brilliant-cut diamonds. This exuberant 1960s ring is an inspired, artistic exploration of line and volume realized in gorgeous gems and bold contours.

While Van Cleef & Arpels jewelers consistently innovated widely among its signature floral and textile-inspired “passementerie” designs, they were also eminently capable, as with this ring, of deploying gems and precious metals in the service of streamlined modernist abstraction.
