This is a very striking man's diamond ring with a classic design and impressive diamond. The mounting is two-toned which can be seen in the photos. The outside edges are yellow and the center portion of the band including the prongs is white. Inside the band is stamped 14K-PALL. which stands for 14 karat gold & palladium. The prongs could be the only palladium as this was a common material to use for prongs. The white of the band could be either 14k white gold or palladium. The ring weight is approximately 8.1 dwt.
Set in the four prongs is a round cut diamond that measures 8.00mm by 7.80mm by 4.86mm deep and has an approximate weight of 1.85 carats. A certified gemologist has classified this stone as having an approximate clarity of VVS1. By definition; Only an expert can only detect flaws with a 10X microscope. If an expert can see a flaw from the top of the diamond, it is a VVS2. Otherwise, if an expert can only detect flaws when viewing the bottom of the stone, then it is a VVS1. The diamond does not appear to have any nicks, repair or damage and none was noted by the gemologist that did the appraisal for us. The diamond has an approximate M-N color. There was no indication by the gemologist that the stone was laser treated or enhanced in any way.
It has been recently appraised by a gemologist to determine the facts as given. I believe the diamond is original to the setting and I believe the ring is from the 1940's.
The band measures about 7/16" wide on the top and 1/4" wide on the palm side. It measures between a 10 1/2 & 11 on my ring mandrel.
I will not remove the diamond to sell it or the band separately.
