.49 ct diamond set in a 14K white gold cocktail ring, ring size 7.5. When I purchased the ring it was described as having an Old European cut center diamond, measuring approx 5.2mm, H-I color and SI2-I1 clarity, with 6 single cut diamond accent stones at .04 ctw. The navette portion of the ring measures approx 19mm x 11mm with a 2mm band. The rhodium is worn in areas throughout giving it a vintage patina. You could have it re-dipped in rhodium by your jeweler if you prefer a shiny white gold finish. If you are considering pulling the center stone for a project and selling the setting for scrap, the ring has a nice weight to it at approx 5g. *Please feel free to ask any questions you may have before purchasing as this is a final sale from my personal collection. *Payments through PayPal only.

The 1.08ct 6mm Spessartite Garnet center stone was purchased from Aurelia Gems and was set by my local jeweler. The Loliondo Spessartite has inclusion that can be seen under magnification that are typical of spess garnets from that location. The center stone is set a little crooked, though it’s not something I noticed when wearing the ring, I wanted to mention it and I’ve reflected this in my asking price in case someone wanted to have the center stone adjusted by their jeweler. The sunflower setting style #126 by itself, not including the center spess or halo spinels, is currently $670 from Yvonne. *Please feel free to ask any questions you may have before purchasing as this is a final sale from my personal collection. *Payments through PayPal only. *I am only shipping within the US at this time. *USPS Priority Mail shipping is included in the asking price. * I can be reached directly at tamethystLT@gmail.com if Loupe Troop messaging isn’t working.
