Beautiful ring purchased in St. Maarten on Carribean cruise. Appraised upon return to U.S. by Van Dorn Appraisal Services, Fredericksburg, VA. Appraisal reads: Ladies diamond engagement ring, high polished, prong set, casted & assembled in 18 kt white gold. Center stone is .25 cts. (4.12 mm) and has 56 round, brilliant-cut, side set diamonds that weigh .005 cts. (1mm) each. The center diamond has a color of J and a clarity of I2. The side diamonds have a color of H with a clarity of SI1. They assessed replacement cost new at $1,500!!
Must highlight that this ring is 18k gold - not standard 14k. And, while .25 ct center stone may sound small, its setting gives the appearence of a much larger diamond. I originally purchased this ring for $795. It was purchased for my dad to give to my mom to replace hers (she thought it had been stolen). Then she found hers before we had a chance to present this to her. Has never been worn/Asking $675 but worth much more..see replacement value & actual purchase cost. Now just looking to pay towards the credit card bill. Serious buyers/CASH only. No scammers please. WILL NOT SHIP OVERSEAS nor anywhere for that matter. Text questions/offers only to 540-446-1886.
