Spectacular cocktail ring in 14k rose gold set with between six and seven carats of high-quality Princess-cut diamonds in four invisibly-set rows. Invisible setting was invented by Van Cleef & Arpels in France in the 1930s, and involved hand-cutting grooves into adjoining stones (breaking many in the process) so that they fitted into each other without any apparent metal in between. Owing to the wastage in time and material it was incredibly expensive. Now the grooving is done by laser, as diamonds are too hard to cut in the original manner, but it is still a very tricky technique. The ring is in the Retro or 1940's style, and although this technique existed in the 1940s, it was done only by a few French jewellers, and never in diamond. This ring probably dates from the 1970s/80s and may be American or even South American.

Whatever its origin, it is an amazing ring. A large finger size 9 makes it wearable by either sex.
