Vintage estate 14k white gold 3.75 carat oval aquamarine with 1.60 carat diamond halo cocktail statement ring, size 7. Big showy jewel measures 13/16" in length x 11/16" in width, with a side profile rise of 1/2". The thick band tapers to 2mm at the back of the ring shank, weighs a sturdy 7.7 grams. This ring is quite substantial and would be safe to size up or down a few sizes. We offer resizing services, please inquire. Gorgeous dramatic raised gallery with big fat 16 prong claw mounting nestles the aquamarine securely in its setting. The medium-light powder blue aquamarine is of excellent cut and measures 13mm x 10mm x 5mm (3.75 carat). Surrounded by a halo of 16 round brilliant cut diamonds in four-prong settings, each 3mm in diameter (.10 carat each, 1.60 carat total weight). The diamonds are eye visibly clean, (no visible inclusions without the use of 10X magnification), and range from SI1 to VS2 clarity with excellent near colorless H-I color. Hallmarked "14k" on the inside of the ring shank. In truly excellent well cared for condition with only one flaw to note, one of the diamonds adjacent from the shoulder has a very small (not eye visible) edge nick. All of the diamonds and the aqua are completely original to the ring and there have been no alterations or repairs to this ring. Absolutely stunning finger grabbing mid- century Hollywood Glam at it's finest! Circa 1960s. VIDEO OF THIS RING AVAILABLE- please inquire...

Aquamarine is the blue variety of the mineral Beryl. The name comes from the Latin aqua-marina, or "water of the sea". Aquamarine is the traditional birth stone for the month of March. Since early times it was believed to impart the wearer with courage, happiness, and harmony. Legend has it that aqua would protect sailors from hardship and sea sickness. It also is associated with healing, reduction of anxiety, and to quell the effects of toxins.
