A colourful vintage chrysoprase and diamond ‘Fidji’ ring by Van Cleef and Arpels c.1969, the ring of bombe design centred with an oval cabochon of bright green translucent chrysoprase above a band of round brilliant diamonds in yellow gold with the shoulders and sides of the ring in carved and polished chrysoprase, the band in 18ct yellow gold. This lovely dress ring is a beautiful spring-like green which combines well with the warmth of yellow gold and the sparkling highlight of diamonds. Chrysoprase is a member of the Quartz family sought after and valued for its characteristic colour. It has been used in jewellery since Antiquity and is one of Van Cleef & Arpels favoured ornamental gems. They say “Van Cleef & Arpels sources its chrysoprase predominantly in Australia. While the stone may display myriad nuances of green, from light shades to the deepest hues, the chrysoprase used by the Maison stands out for even, harmonious tones and an exceptionally pure essence. Various stages of polishing bring out its gleam and its vibrant colour, imparting a unique intensity to every creation.” Being straight sided this ring would work just as well stacked with other bands as it would worn alone and would make a fun and colourful addition to any outfit.

Joanna Hardy says: " Beautifully made jewel, which is ideal for summer holiday."
