VAN CLEEF & ARPELS Mystery Set™ Ruby Diamond Bracelet Plat in Platinum.
A notable bracelet featuring calibré-cut rubies 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 three-row design. The saturation of rubies is intensified against stark white diamonds flanked on both edges, which frame the artful subject.
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 bracelet dates from the 1970s and is the sum of almost half-century in mastering their proprietary technique.
Signed Van Cleef & Arpels; circa 1970s.
