Rare Van Cleef & Arpels Ruby and Diamond Platinum Mystery Set Ring


Extremely rare platinum diamond and ruby Mystery Set Ring by Van Cleef and Arpels. This ring is set with 75 impeccably matched Burmese rubies, the setting invisible to the eye from the top of the ring. An even flow of gorgeous red around the finger embellished by a row of beautiful bright white round diamonds set in platinum on either side. The Van Cleef and Arpels Mystery Setting which was patented in 1933, requires that each gemstone be perfectly matched to the exact millimeter and the part beneath the girdle have a notch cut in to it so that it can slide into a railing, only visible from beneath and touch the other stones around it exactly on its girdle. This process requires the highest degree of craftsmanship and takes a tremendous amount of time to complete.Once completed this piece of jewelry becomes a piece of rare art and a true collectible.
