This is an Estate item.
This is an extremely well made ring with 6 brilliant-cut Genuine Diamonds. The ring is solid 14 karat yellow gold and is stamped with a "Blueray" trademark. The center Diamond is H color (virtually colorless in this size) and measures 5.35 mm diameter. The clarity is VS1-VS2. (It is what we in the trade call "eye clean”). With a 10 power microscope it is nearly impossible to see any imperfections. The weight is approximately 0.55 carats.
The 5 Diamonds surrounding the center Diamond are all about 3.6 mm in diameter and individually weigh about 0.17 carats each for a total of approximately 0.85 carats. The quality of these 5 Diamonds is slightly better than the center Diamond. Their clarity is VVS2 -VS1 The total carat weight of all the Diamonds is about 1.40 carats.
The Diamonds are prong set and the setting is absolutely 1st quality. The prongs are nice and sturdy and the seats fit the Diamonds perfectly. The band has two 'sizing bumps' which can be easily removed if the ring is resized. It is presently size 5.
We can resize the ring here in our workshop if you so desire.
In 2007 this ring was appraised at US$ 5,360 retail value.
Today, nearly 8 years later, the center Diamond is worth a minimum of $2,800. The surrounding Diamonds are worth about $450 each ($2,250 for the 5 gems).

Total price for this complete ring would be about $5,850.
