I am looking to see if there is any interest in this engagement ring. The engagement has been called off and we have parted as friends so this ring needs to find another finger. I might just keep it but feel it is such a beautiful ring someone should wear it proudly!
Please excuse the upside down photos taken with an i-pad. I will post better photos this week. The photos do not capture how beautiful this ring is!
The center diamond is a 1.75 CT. round brilliant
H color, VS2 clarity
7.72 x 7.69 x 4.84
15% crown height
44% pavilion depth
Listed as Excellent Ideal Cut "hearts and arrows" on EGL report.
The setting is a custom Danhov ME halo, cushion shape in solid platinum (stamped Danhov 950)with a split shank. 60 round brilliant cut diamonds weighing .50 CT in g color VS-1 clarity.
The ring weighs 11.29 grams so there is no doubt it is platinum!
My local jeweler who deals in wholesale diamonds and supplies other jewelers in San Diego has a replacement value of $19,800 from 2/2012. Replacement value is not an insurance appraisal. This means this wholesale jeweler could replace this ring in 2012 for $19,800. An insurance value is typically based on retail replacement and would more than likely be closer to $25K. However,I want to be realistic about what someone may pay for this through a private seller. I am asking $15,000 and will consider serious offers. Any feedback appreciated!
A little checking on Blue Nile shows a 1.75 I-VS2 with same proportions listed at $13,900. To duplicate the Danhov setting today is $6,500K.
