Van Cleef & Arpels Ruby and Diamond Earrings


A demonstration of superlative artistry, this pair of French mid-20th century Van Cleef & Arpels clipback button earrings with stripes of rubies and diamonds is a masterpiece of modernism. With radiance that exceeds even their ideal proportions, the regimental lines of round-cut bright red rubies against bright colorless diamonds create a sense of visual order that’s immediate and compelling.
