Van Cleef & Arpels Turquoise and Diamond Ring

Created by Van Cleef & Arpels in the 1970s, this bombé ring is composed of turquoise, diamonds and 18K gold. The substantial bombé form centers a large oval turquoise cabochon framed by arched lines of diamonds and swirling gold ropetwist. A well-engineered ring that balances perfectly on the finger, this bold and dynamic jewel expresses the free and experimental spirit of the 70s.

The 1970s were an eclectic design period at Van Cleef & Arpels. Their jewelry ranged from opulent Indian-inspired gem-set convertible necklaces, to fanciful wirework confections set with colorful stones such as this, and to jewels inspired by ancient and contemporary history alike, such as a pair of irregularly textured "Etruscan" manchette bracelets, owed by Jackie O, and a cratered "Luna" pendant to inspired by the moon landing.
