Superb Quality Platinum & 1.52ct Three Stone Diamond Ring
Regular price $5,472.00
Presented is a dazzling platinum and diamond ring. This is a modern piece, likely made in America. The ring is set with three square brilliant cut diamonds, a larger one in the center with a smaller diamond on either side. The ring comes with an appraisal card from the International Gemmological Institute, which gives the size of the center diamond as 86 points, with a clarity of VS-1 to VS-2 and a color of H/I. The side diamonds are listed as 33 points apiece (66 points total) with a clarity of SI-1 to SI-2 and color of I. We feel that the IGI grading of the center diamond is on the conservative side, as our gemologist has examined the center diamond and found only one tiny inclusion of light color (not a black carbon inclusion) internally below the table. This inclusion is very hard to see even under magnification with a good jeweler's loup, and we would grade this diamond as VVS. In any case all the diamonds are great quality, eye-clean stones, beautifully cut, with great polish and symmetry. The total diamond weight for the ring is 1.52 carats. The appraisal card gives the estimated retail replacement value of the ring as $9,225. The interior of the band is stamped PT950, for platinum. The accompanying appraisal card mentions a maker's mark of ZEI and a stamp of 1.52 giving the total diamond weight as 1.52 carats, but the maker's mark and the diamond weight stamp are mostly worn away likely by polishing. This ring is in great condition. The diamonds are securely set, with no chips. The band is in good shape, with no damages or repairs. The ring is a size 4 1/4. The ring weighs 11 grams.
