Fall under the allurement of rubies with this stunning ruby and diamond pair of ear clips by Van Cleef and Arpels from the very own collection of Barbara and Frank Sinatra that dates back to the 1960s. The earring surmounts are exceptionally crafted as stylized wings, pavé-set with brilliant round cut diamonds mounted in platinum, each suspending a detachable drop-shaped pendant mystery-set with vibrant calibré-cut rubies and capped by brilliant round cut diamonds.

The ‘Mystery-Set’ technique was invented by Van Cleef & Arpels in 1933, which is a technique used for setting gemstones in a specific way so that no prongs are visible. The design is so intricate that producing a single clip takes approximately 300 hours. Each faceted stone is gently placed onto thin gold rails measuring less than two-tenths of a millimeter wide. When the technique is complete, the gems appear to be entirely free-standing. The process is so complex making Mystery Set pieces extremely rare.

 Signed Van Cleef & Arpels
