Condition Report: Very good condition


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.

Joanna Hardy says: "1950s jewels were unapologetic in their size and use of diamonds. This ring is a great example of the cocktail ring that had no other purpose (unlike an engagement ring or wedding ring) other than to be impactful and stylish. The bombé (domed) design was very popular during the 50s and looks great pave set with diamonds."
