A visually intriguing mix of design details comes together in this Contemporary Diamond and Ruby Demi Parure Suite, comprised of three thematically related pieces—a pair of ear clips, a brooch, and ring—each of bombé design. Although made in the 21st century, the sumptuous textured goldwork and beautiful stone placement is rooted in the look of Mid-Century jewels. Each fully rounded, sparkling sculpture, crafted in 18K yellow gold and platinum, represents a globe-like intriguing flower. There are 5 variously sized flowers in total across the three pieces, set with 149 round faceted red rubies with an estimated total weight of 16.00 carats, and 96 white round brilliant-cut diamonds with an estimated total weight of 15.00 carats.

The domed bombé style, with its attention-grabbing shape and inflated surface area for more elaborate embellishment, reflected tastes in the 1950s for full volumes. The term bombé is French, meaning ‘bomb-shaped’ and named for the French dessert, bombe glacée or ice cream bomb. The bombé style has seen many resurgences of popularity throughout the years, as early as the Edwardian (1901-1910) and Art Deco (1919-1939) periods, and again in the 1950s and early 1960s conveying a tactilely pleasing opulence with a “Hollywood Glamour” inflection, as well as in the 1970s and 1980s, where big, bold, and gold was a favored aesthetic. In this suite, the full roundness of each gold flower is topped with a further domed cluster of round-brilliant-cut diamond “pistils” or floral centers, mounted in platinum. For the ring and earrings, each sparkling grouping is comprised of a single diamond in the center, surrounded by a 6 diamond rosette configuration and further surrounded by 11, for a total of 18 diamonds per flower. The double-pinstem brooch is composed of two flowers, one smaller and one larger, facing in two directions atop curving stems presented as simple, highly polished yellow gold forms. The brooch presents diamond sparkle in all directions, including in the bottom “cut edge” of the stem, which is adorned with pavé diamonds. The center of the smaller flower follows the same pattern as the earrings and ring, likewise set with 18 diamonds. The diamonds in the larger flower, however, are set in 5 rows, composed of 24 diamonds.

Compositionally well thought-out, the textured gold petals cascade and amplify the dazzle of the diamonds and rubies. The effect is simply magnificent. The proliferation of petals is like so many peacock feathers, each accented asymmetrically with a lustrous ruby. Additionally, each petal has a custom cutout for each gem, and the four-prong setting is open in the back to allow light in behind each stone - which amplifies the subtle sparkle and rich color. Examining the reverse sides of all three pieces, each deep volume is hollowed out - which not only to lighten the weight of each design for comfort, but also allow light in to activate the fabulous collection of gemstones.

Earring measure approx. 1" x 1"; clip-on style. Ring is size US 5.5; can be resized albeit to a limit. Pin measurement approx. 2" x 2". 149 round brilliant rubies weighing approx. 16.00 carats total. Round brilliant diamonds weighing approx. 15.00 carats total. Overall weight approx. 106.68 grams, made in 18k yellow gold and platinum. Circa 21st Century.
