Exquisite High Grade 18k Gold Vs 1ct Diamond Ruby Earrings
Regular price $1,872.00
Presented is a wonderful quality pair of 18K gold, ruby and diamond earrings. The earrings are each bezel set with a fabulous oval faceted ruby at the center with a ring of 9 larger diamonds around it and another ring of 26 smaller diamonds around the outer edge. The rubies have wonderful pigeon blood red color. The measurements of each ruby taken over the gold bezel are approximately 5 millimeters by 6 millimeters. Each earring is set with 35 diamonds for a total of 70 diamonds. The diamonds are all modern round brilliant cut stones. The 18 larger diamonds are approximately 3 points in size each, and the 52 smaller diamonds are about 1 point each. We estimate the total carat weight in diamonds for both earrings to be at least 1 carat, perhaps a little more. The diamonds are high grade stones with G color and VS clarity. The gold settings are beautifully made out of a deep yellow gold. They have clip backs; the spring mechanisms on the clip backs are really strong and secure. These are high end earrings. They were certainly very expensive when new. They are fairly modern. The earrings are marked 750 on the reverse for 18K gold. We have tested them with nitric acid and guarantee them to be 18K gold. The condition is excellent. The stones are well set. The clip backs are strong and in good working order. There are no splits, no breaks, and no repairs. The earrings measure 7/8 inch by 1 inch.
The weight is 13.5 grams.
