Exquisite, incredibly rare quality 'flawless' diamonds feature in this stunning engagement ring that was originally purchased from the Gazdar jewellery store which, has been located inside the Taj Hotel in Mumbai (Bombay) since 1934. Gazdar fine jewellery often graces the auctions at Christie's, Sotheby's and Bonhams.
Classically designed in a geometric Art Deco style the central diamond measures over a carat and is princess cut. The two side diamonds are baguette cut and measure over 1/2 carat each. Incredible brilliance to the stones and colorless, it is a breathtaking ring that is bound to impress. The heavy mount is rendered in rich buttery yellow 18K gold.
The ring is accompanied by a New Zealand based gemologist's certificate reporting a market value of NZ$13,500 in 1996 (approx. $8,800 US/£6,800 GBP). The price of gold and diamonds has risen considerably since then.
The central princess cut 1.07 carat diamond is flanked by two baguette cut diamonds of 0.51 carats each. Total carat weight 2.09 The diamonds inspected in the setting are graded at VS1 or higher. A flawless grade would require them being removed from the setting and we leave this to the new owner. Colour of all three diamonds is graded near colourless at G-H.
Size: UK - J-1/2, US - 5 with sizing available for an additional fee.
No visible hallmarks, tests at 18K gold purity. Weight 4.71 grams. Has a stock number "LPV2 2 90" inscribed inside the band. In very, very good condition with light surface wear, no chips in the diamonds which, are secure in the setting.
