French Basilica: Diamond Dome Ring

$9,850 USD

Leave it to the French to create a very large and show stopping finger ring without teetering over the edge. High couture style reminiscent of Van Cleef & Arpels takes on the form of a dome ring.

Now, this is not your ordinary dome ring as fifty-nine (59) brilliant cut diamonds of an estimated total 3.85 carats (H-I color average; VS2 clarity average) are dramatically arranged across a scaffolding of 18k yellow gold. A diamond-set dome literally paved with sheen and shimmer sets the pace. A series of eight (8) brilliants cut diamonds set into curvaceous collets surmount a lower tier of petal-like scallops each containing three (3) more brilliant cuts. Marvelous gold openwork provides the support for this basilica of diamonds and gold.

Date: Circa 1975.
