A beautiful diamond and gold bombe dress ring by Van Cleef & Arpels c.1959, centred with a circular dome of pavé set round brilliant cut diamonds in platinum surrounded by an 18ct yellow gold openwork mount of flame-like design, formed of multiple gold threads tapering down to a reeded band. The diamonds are high quality, well matched and bright and lively. The structure of the mount evokes images of curved flames licking up the sides of the ring and encircling the diamond dome. This beautiful ring is perfectly proportioned, ever so stylish and has a wonderful three-dimensional profile, a really lovely example of VCA’s wearable chic 1950s jewels.
