2.33 Carat Antique Cushion-Cut Diamond Ring - GIA

We commissioned our expert jeweler to fashion a new mounting for this gorgeous, radiant, 2.33 carat antique cushion-cut diamond to replace the timeworn original. However, instead of platinum, we chose 18K gold to compliment the warm glow of the stone (graded N color -VVS2 clarity by the GIA). The sparkling diamond is embellished on each shoulder with tiny round diamonds leading to a fluted ring shank. The slatted arches on the gallery lend a dash of neoclassical/Art Deco flair. Size 6 1/2.

4.57 Carat Vintage Emerald-Cut Diamond Ring - GIA G-VS1

A classically modeled vintage emerald-cut (a.k.a. Asscher-cut) diamond weighing 4.57carats, with GIA Diamond Grading Report stating G color-VS1 clarity, is presented between a pair of shimmering baguettes. This spectacular sparkler is imbued with a natural phenomenon, clinically referred to as 'very strong fluorescence,' which causes it to radiate with a very subtle 'blue-white' effect under direct sunlight. Currently ring size 7.
