VAN CLEEF & ARPELS Mystery Set™ Double Boule Sapphire Ring in Platinum and 18k Gold.
A recognizable Double Boule ring featuring calibré-cut sapphires in the famous Mystery Set™ technique by Van Cleef & Arpels. Emblematic to the gem setting, a mosaic of color and light is brilliantly uninterrupted by any semblance of metal in the bombé design. The saturation of sapphires is intensified against stark white diamonds set in French pavé, which opposes the colored gems in bypass form.
Also known as ‘serti mysterieux’, the pioneering Mystery Set™ has been a trademark of the Maison since 1933. The proficiency and skillset required in fashioning the seamless work are known to be rare and time-intensive. Therefore, the Maison is said to create a limited amount of pieces per year – a practice Van Cleef & Arpels has implemented from inception to modern-day. This particular ring dates from the 1960s and is the sum of almost 30 years in mastering their proprietary technique.
Currently fits a US size 6; can be resized.
Made in France. Signed Van Cleef & Arpels; circa 1960s.
