The spirit of this colorful Signed Palmiero Diamond Sapphire Bombé Ring, made in Italy in the 21st century, invokes the spirit of the 1970s when jewelry was big and bold, with a dazzling display of gold and diamonds. Crafted in 18K yellow gold, the ring features a joyful oval-shaped volume with a dynamic surface pattern set with diamonds that weigh approximately 1.86 carats and sapphires that weigh approximately 8.91 carats. The pavé-set gemstones give life to this jewel of great complexity. The domed shape is decorated with an irregular pattern that is tortoise shell-meets-giraffe, divided into hexagons and pentagons of various proportions. The geometric sections are demarcated with doubled gold rows etched into the surface. The angled gold planes meet in a V shape, amplifying the sparkle of the pavé diamonds in all directions.

Carlo Palmiero, a master goldsmith who founded his company in 1979 in Valenza, is a sculptor at heart. He is highly skillful at capturing volumes, movement, energy, and even ephemeral moments in many of his works. His ability to convey fluid gestural forms is evident when examining this ring from various angles. From side view, the ring curves in all directions, yet it is constructed from one fluid piece of metal. Like the great Italian Renaissance artist, Michelangelo, said about sculpture, “Every block of stone has a statue inside it, and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it.” Here, Palmiero revealed the ring and then adorned it with sparkling gemstones to accentuate the form.

The bombé ring has seen many resurgences of popularity throughout the years, particularly in the Edwardian period (1901-1910; named for King, Edward VII who was lighthearted and luxury-loving), the Art Deco period (defined as the design period between the World Wars, 1918-1939), in the 1950s and early 1960s with a “Hollywood Glamour” inflection, and again in the 1970s disco era. Today, bombé rings have had a resurgence as cocktail or even engagement rings. A beautiful design detail, reserved just for the wearer, can be found on the inside of the ring where the stones are set: a geometric openwork pattern in gold alluding to the pattern on the outer part of the dome, but even more jazzy. The fine workmanship and attention to detail make this bombé ring quite a dazzling stand-out.
