Dating back to the Edwardian era, bombé rings have a distinct dome shape. The name originates from the French word for ‘bomb’ and aptly describes the rounded style of the ring. It gained popularity in the mid-20th century as a coveted engagement band. A diamond bombé ring by Graff is one of the highlights of the upcoming Fine Jewels auction, presented by Sotheby’s. Another key lot is a pair of clip-brooches by Michele Della Valle. Designed to resemble feathers, one is set with calibré-cut buff-top amethysts while the other has peridot. Each of the feathers is highlighted with round diamonds. Also included is a pair of flower-shaped ‘G-One’ earclips by Goshwara. Each one has petals set with cabochon turquoise and round diamond accents.
A set of Bulgari Pigne earclips and matching necklace is also one of the highlighted lots. The gold link necklace is designed with suspended bell-shaped drops pavé-set with round diamonds. Another item of interest is a David Webb gold bangle with a hammered finish, accented with six plaques. To view the complete catalog and register to bid online, visit Sotheby’s.
