Lot 0167 Details

Vintage 14kt Gold Orange/Champagne Diamond Ring. Size 5.25, 1920's, old cut, yellow and white gold, 1.61 grams. The diamond sits high in the setting and it measures appx. 4.1mm across and at a minimum 2.5mm deep. The measurements are not accurate due to being in the setting - I believe the depth is actually longer than that. In addition, the lowest measurement across the top was 4.1 but also was 4.3 but I took the smaller measurement in that direction too. At a minimum the ring is a .27 ctw. This is an older cut and not the perfect cut that you see more today - very, very nice. The band has a wheat like design over the top and sides of the upper part of the band and this is both yellow and white gold. It is marked 14kt and tested. This was in a box Wise Jewelers with another ring - the box is not part of the sale but you can see the age in the box. The owner's family had provided information to the estate auction that this was "a rare orange" diamond. I personally believe it is more champaigne - it is a pale brown with yellow/golden color but color is different to everyone and not everyone sees color the same. Either way, this is an old ring. I've seen rings of this vintage and size sell for $1,200 and higher. This is reported to be a natural color, not colored, etc. You can tell that it is an older ring in the design and the wear on the band - the band has lots of life left but it is not the same thickness at the back of the finger that it was new. I am offering the box in a separate listing. I have cleaned it lightly but it needs a professional full cleaning and then I think it will sparkle even more. Good condition. This came from a PA estate. See Photos. (My Loc. Num. W.11.417.8x8 - LD 11/9/17). International shipping will require buyer pay for insurance.
