BALLERINA

Ballerina cluster rings are a fanciful and distinctive style of cluster. Inspired by the shape of a ballerina's tutu, the cluster of diamonds simulates the flowing movement of the ballerina dancing, creating a dramatic swirling effect on the finger.

Ballerina clusters are first seen in the 1950s and were a design favoured by some of the most prestigious of jewellery houses such as Tiffany, Boucheron and Oscar Heyman Brothers. The skill in creating a ‘ballerina' involved meticulous precision and exactness in the cutting and setting of the gemstones to lie perfectly next to each other.
