Vintage ring with diamonds in gold by van Cleef & Arpels, dated 1973

Paris is the city of great jewelry houses. Cartier, Boucheron, Chaumet, there are so many great names that have their headquarters in the capital of France that instead of "All roads lead to Rome", it should really be "All roads lead to Paris"! The ring in question here, then, comes from one of the most famous jewelry houses of the present day, van Cleef & Arpels. The Maison was founded in Paris in 1896 by the Dutch diamond cutter Alfred Van Cleef and his father-in-law Salomon Arpels. Since 1906, the company has had its premises at 22 Place Vendôme, opposite the Hôtel Ritz. The ring made of high-carat gold and diamonds was created in 1973. It actually consists of three rings. On the right and left sides there is a curved ring made of yellow gold. They protect the third ring in the middle, made of white gold, which is set with about 1.15 ct of first-class diamonds. Taken together, the three rings look like a blossoming precious flower. The hallmarks of the ring prove its authenticity, the quality of the materials also speaks for itself. We discovered the ring in Hamburg and had it newly polished. So now it shines like the first day.
