This magnificent one of a kind Art Deco ring has a awesome 1.36 carat center diamond that is flanked by faceted tapered trillion synthetic blue sapphires on each side. The diamond has been laboratory certified by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) the leading diamond grading laboratory in the world.
The diamond is 1.36 carats round brilliant cut. The color is natural (not heat treated) light greenish yellow with very strong blue fluorescence with SI1 clarity. GIA Colored diamond report number 2151982882, This can be looked up on the internet. On the GIA website you can also find information on how they grade colored diamonds as compared to the D-Z chart for regular diamonds.
This is your chance to own a natural colored diamond. Inside the house the diamond is a pale yellow color (the color of Champagne) but outside it turns to a beautiful teal blue color. My jeweler explained to me the light greenish yellow means more yellow color and the strong blue fluorescence makes it turn teal in UV light because of minerals in the ground when the diamond formed. (He wanted to buy just the diamond) Most colored diamonds today are enhanced by heat treatment or irradiated (blue, brown and some yellow). Natural colored diamonds sell for tens of thousands of dollars.
The diamond is in its original setting, which is made of 18K white gold with millegrain, engraving and hand pierced filigree. (I love the flowers engraved on either side of the ring) This ring does sit fairly high off the finger (7/8 of an inch) but I wore it and did not notice it catching or rolling around. It has a nice balance to the design.
The ring is a size 7 1/8 and marked 18K , acid tested for purity, white gold and weighs 2.4 grams. It can be resized up or down. Included free of charge.
Condition is very good. There is very little wear to the engraving on the bottom of the shank. There is a spot just left of the flower on one side of the ring that melted at some point when the ring was repaired. My jeweler said to leave it alone it might ruin the setting to try to fix it and it does not compromise the strength of the setting. It is not noticeable unless you look for it, I just point out any flaws and there are two pictures showing it. All the prongs are new (we had to remove the diamond to send it to the GIA).
I have a picture of the diamond ring on my daughters finger with her wedding band (which is not included). She found her wedding band at a mall jewelry store. It is curved to fit around an antique setting. (She has an Art Deco engagement ring) My own jeweler can order any carat weight and size curved band (most jewelers can) My daughters is 18K.
Don't give her a cookie cutter diamond or reproduction setting, give her a one of a kind.
