Rings That Break the Mould

The new Between the Finger ring in the Two Butterfly collection with mother-of-pearl and diamonds

​What rules dictate that rings should only span the width of one finger? Not content to stay within the confines of tradition, Van Cleef and Arpels first introduced the between-the-finger ring as early as 1970s, and even had the term trademarked.

Over the years these rings have been embellished by dancing butterflies, free-spirited birds and blossoming florals, and this month, a new between-the-finger ring is revealed in their Two Butterfly collection.

Decorated with mother-of-pearl, rose gold and diamonds, the ring is a work of true craftsmanship. The ring spans the width of two fingers, but with its intricate open design, the butterflies sit delicately, and comfortably above the wearer's knuckles.

Travel back in history and discover some of our favourite between-the-finger rings in the gallery.
