Dazzle her with the gift of natural turquoise. Eternally beautiful.
The wonder of Persian turquoise is beautifully displayed in this amazing ring. Crafted of 18K yellow gold, it features a splendid specimen of turquoise at center that is magnificently accented with four leaves, each with fourteen 3 point diamonds. These 56 diamonds are near colorless with clarity estimated in the setting at VS1-2. Total diamond carat weight estimated at 1.68 carats.
The domed cabochon measures 11x10mm and the four diamond laden quadrants each measure 8.3mm wide, rising up 9mm to gently hug its turquoise cargo. The entire face of the ring measures 3/4" by 3/4". The picture perfect turquoise offers a uniform, matrix free sky blue hue with just a hint of green undertones. Under magnification, two minute iron spots are visible. These are not visible with the naked eye. The turquoise is estimated at 9 carats.
The cabochon's undergallery is fitted with a hand pierced platform that keeps the cabochon sturdy as well as offering a most elegant finishing touch. Never underestimate that Italian flair. We all love it, don't we? On the hand, the ring rises off the finger approximately 1/2". This ring will not go unnoticed, ladies.
The ring shoulders are wide at just under 1/2" (11mm) and hand chased with a deep herringbone pattern. The shank slowly narrows to 1/4" (6mm). This generous width makes this a very comfortable ring to wear. The ring measures a 7.25 US, with its domed design perhaps accommodating up to a size 7.5 US. It is resizeable one or two sizes up or down. Sizing beads can also be added for a snug fit and to prevent sliding, but the width of the face holds this ring fairly well at grand attention. The ring weighs 11.1 grams. There are no hallmarks but the ring has tested at 18K gold.
This ring was custom crafted in Italy and accordingly offers extraordinary craftsmanship and tremendous flair. We estimate age to be 1980's but it has indeed lived a beautiful life. It is in pristine, like new condition. We see no use related scratches or pitting to the turquoise and it still retains its original high polish gloss, a difficult task with any turquoise. All diamonds are secure and original. The 18K gold mount is also in excellent condition with minimal surface etching.
This ring will be delivered in a lovely presentation case, perfect for gift giving and storage. It is ready to wear and impress upon arrival.
For those lucky December birthday babes, turquoise is THE birthstone for December. But turquoise is beloved by all women and for any occasion.
