SKU #R-8
(You save )

This delicate and classic, yet modern diamond ring can be worn as either a cocktail ring or a non-traditional engagement ring. The GIA-graded, cushion shaped, natural, untreated, fancy intense yellow color and VS1 clarity rating make this almost ¾ carat (0.73 carats to be exact) diamond quite rare. It cannot be missed as it sits atop a yellow 18 kt gold crown for all to see. The yellow center diamond is encircled by two 18 kt white gold halos filled with near colorless diamonds which are built upon a floral design undercarriage. The split shoulders on both sides of the 18 kt white gold band are further embellished with 28 round brilliant cut diamonds. This alluring ring will be treasured for years.


GORDON'S DESIGN NOTES: "I was attending the AGTA Gem Show in Tucson when a fellow GIA Gemologist whose opinion I trust informed me about a potential new supplier I should check out. I met with the supplier and he was offering a small number of beautiful yellow diamond rings for sale. My initial inspection indicated the gemstones were quite good and the rings were well constructed. I decided to buy one of his rings but also to challenge my initial assessment of the gemstones. I sent the ring to GIA for evaluation. Their rating of the center stone indicated it was indeed natural and untreated and its combination of size, color and clarity made it quite rare. While not as rare, the near colorless accent diamonds were verified as natural and untreated. This is a supplier I will certainly visit again.

When dressing, fine jewelry should always be the last item put on and the first item taken off to minimize the gemstones coming into contact with perfume, lotions, hair products, etc.
Care Continued:
Protect your jewelry from impact against hard surfaces and avoid contact with abrasive surfaces. All gemstones, including diamonds, can chip, scratch, or abrade under the right circumstances.
Care specifics:
With wear, rhodium plating can thin to the point where a yellowish tinge may show through. Periodic re-coating with rhodium will revive the original bright white color. Re-plating does not damage the gemstones.
The best method for cleaning all your jewelry is to soak each item in a mixture of lukewarm water and gentle dish washing liquid followed by a very light cleaning with a soft child’s toothbrush.
Additional Cleaning:
Place the item(s) in a fine mesh strainer and rinse to remove the soap. Gently place each item on a lint-free cloth and softly pat them dry. See the Care and Cleaning Section of the Website for a more detailed explanation.
