THIS IS SUCH A BEAUTIFUL SIGNEDCIRCA 1930'S ART DECO ERA ENGAGEMENT RING WITH ITS WONDERFUL COMBINATION OF FANCY SHAPED BAGUETTE & RARELY FOUND SQUARE CUT DIAMOND ACCENTS AND AN IMPRESSIVE ROUND BRILLIANT CUT DIAMOND CENTER STONE. THE ALL SOLID PLATINUM MOUNTING EXHIBITS EXPERT CRAFTSMANSHIP AND SUPERB ATTENTION TO DETAIL AS IT WAS CRAFTED BY THE REKNOWN JEWELRY MAKER "C. D. PEACOCK" OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS WHICH WAS ESTABLISHED IN 1837. PEACOCK'S INVENTORY WAS ALL THAT SURVIVED THE GREAT CHICAGO FIRE OF 1871 HAVING BEEN LOCKED IN THEIR STEEL VAULT THAT NIGHT ANDIT STILL EXISTS TODAY. THE OUTSTANDING QUALITY THAT THIS OBVIOUSLY DISPLAYS IS NOT FOUND IN JEWELRY MADE NOW-A-DAYSOR IN WHATONE FINDSIN ANY OF THE TYPICAL MALL, DEPARTMENT OR CHAIN TYPE JEWELRY STORES. IT'S JUST ANOTHER REASON TO APPRECIATE FINE QUALITY ESTATE ~ VINTAGE & ANTIQUE JEWELRY SUCH AS THIS AND WHY I'VE KEPT THIS GORGEOUS LADIES DIAMOND ENGAGEMENT RING TUCKED AWAY FOR NEARLYTHREE DECADE EVER SINCE MY ACQUIRING IT FROM AN ESTATE I HANDLED OF A WEALTHY BUSINESS OWNERS WIFE WHO LIVED IN THE EXCLUSIVE AREA OF FREEMONT PLACE IN LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA. EACH & EVERY GLORIOUS 100% NATURAL, UNENHANCED DIAMOND IS SUPERB WITH THE CENTER LARGE ROUND BRILLIANT CUT SOLITAIRE MEASURING 5.2+mm IN DIAMETER WITH A WEIGHT OF53 POINTS (WELL OVER 1/2 CARAT). THIS DELIGHTFUL DIAMOND IS OF VERY DESIREABLE "SI-1" CLARITY SO IT HAS ENORMOUS BRILLIANCE WITH NOT A SINGLE VISIBLE FLAW, INCLUSION OR SPECK OF BLACK CARBON. YOU'D ACTUALLY NEED A MICROSCOPE TO FIND EVEN A SLIGHT IMPERFECTION. THESHIMMERING WHITE "F-G" COLOR (CONSIDERED TOP RATED COLORS ON ANY DIAMOND CHART) PROVIDES ALL THE SPARKLE AND VIBRANCY WE HAVE ALL COME TO LOVE ABOUT DIAMONDS. THIS RING IS STYLED WITH FABULOUS STEP DESIGNED SIDES CONTAINING 2 ALL 100% NATURAL, UNENHANCED, FACETED, FANCY SHAPED, BAGUETTES ALONG WITH 2 ADDITIONAL RARELY FOUND 100% NATURAL, UNENHANCED, FACETED, SQUARE SHAPE DIAMONDS(AS 1 BAGUETTE AND 1 SQUARE CUT SET ON EACH SIDE OF THE AMAZING SOLITAIRE CENTER). THE FANCY BAGUETTES EACH MEASURES 2.9+mm IN LENGTH AND1.8mm IN WIDTH WITH THE SQUARE SHAPED DIAMONDS EACH MEASURING 1.7mm IN SIZE. COMBINED, THATADDS ANOTHER19 POINTS ~ ALMOST 1/5 CARAT IN DIAMOND WEIGHT FOR A GRAND TOTAL OF72 POINTS (ALMOST 3/4CARAT) IN SHIMMERING WHITE DIAMONDS OF THE MOST FABULOUS QUALITY. THESE FANCY SHAPED ACCENTSARE OF THE MOST EXCELLENT "VS" CLARITY WHICH IS AS CLOSE TO FLAWLESS AS ONE COULD EVER DREAM OF OWNING ANDVERY DESIREABLEEXTRA WHITE "G"COLOR. THESE ARE ALL 100% NATURAL DIAMONDS WITH NO LASER OR CLARITY ENHANCEMENTS, NONE BEING DRILLED OR FRACTURE FILLED AND NOT A SINGLE ONE HAVING BEEN LAB OR MAN ALTERED ~TRULY 100% NATURAL CLARITY AND 100% NATURAL COLOR! IT'S SURELY A TREAT TO OWN TRUE NATURAL DIAMONDS WITH SO MANY NEW JEWELERS OPTING FOR HIGH PROFIT, LOW QUALITY AND ARTIFICAL DIAMONDS BEING USED IN ALMOST ALL JEWELRY MADE TODAY. IT'S SOMETHING I CAN PROUDLY STATE THAT I ONLY BOUGHT NATURAL DIAMONDS AND HAVE NEVER OWNED AN INFERIOR OR ENHANCED DIAMOND. 100% NATURAL DIAMONDS HAVE NONE OF THE TRICKS SO COMMONLY USED IN NEW ENHANCED DIAMONDS SUCH AS LASER DRILLING TO REMOVE CARBON, RESIN FILLING TO HIDE FLAWS OR INCLUSIONS ALONG WITH OTHER TYPES OF LAB MANIPULATIONS CALLED ENHANCEMENTS. ENHANCED DIAMONDS STARTED AS INFERIOR JUNK DIAMONDS COMMONLY USED FOR THINGS LIKE SAW BLADES SO NO MATTER WHAT "IMPROVEMENTS" ARE MADE TO MAKE THEM PRETTY ENOUGH TO BE USED IN JEWELRY, THEY ARE STILL WORTHLESS WITH NO REAL GEM VALUE. IT'S ONLY 100% NATURAL DIAMONDS THAT ARE CONSIDERED INVESTMENT QUALITY SO THE LONGER YOU WEAR & ENJOY YOUR NATURAL DIAMONDS, THE MORE VALUEABLE THEY BECOME UNLIKE ENHANCED DIAMONDS THAT CAN CRACK, CHIP OR EVEN CRUMBLE NOT TO MENTION TURN GREY OR YELLOW OVERTIME. YOU'LL NEVER HAVE THAT HAPPEN WITH A REAL 100% NATURAL DIAMOND. IT'S A GREAT REASON TO SHOP FOR ANTIQUE ~ VINTAGE OR HIGH QUALITY ESTATE/PREVIOUSLY OWNED JEWELRY AS THEY DIDN'T USE TREATED OR ENHANCED DIAMONDS UNTIL JUST ABOUT A DECADE AGO. THE CONDITION OF THIS GORGEOUS RING IS OUTSTANDING WITH NO REPAIRS, NO DENTS, NO UNUSUAL WEAR AND NO DEEP OR BOTHERSOME SCRATCHES. EVEN THESHIMMERING DIAMONDS HAVE NO CHIPS, NO CRACKS AND NO SCRATCHES. THISBEAUTIFUL RING IS CURRENTLY A SIZE 5BUT I'M OFFERING FREE SIZING (SEE DETAILS BELOW). THIS EXQUISITE ENGAGEMENT RING IS HAS A WEIGHT OF 2.2 GRAMS AND IS CRAFTED IN FAR MORE COSTLY PLATINUM WHICH IS DOUBLE THE PRICE OF STANDARD 14KT GOLD. THESE ASPECTS EXEMPLIFIES THEOUTSTANDING QUALITY THAT SURELY VALIDATES THE GIA (GEMOLOGICAL INSTITUTE OF AMERICA) GRADUATE GEMOLOGISTS INSURANCE EVALUATION APPRAISAL WITH AN ESTIMATED RETAIL REPLACEMENT VALUE OF $10,456.00.

*AS FOR RING SIZING: There is no cost for sizing of any of my rings that are in fact, sizeable. I am more than happy to have my wonderful jeweler do the sizing of your ring. However, If I have the re-sizing done prior to shipment, I would not be able to extend my usual 14 day return policy. The issue being that the ring will no longer be as it was when originally described in this listing there by making it impossible for me to offer it to an underbuyer or re-listed in a future sale should you for any reason decide to return it. I am happy to have the sizing done prior to shipping but the item will only be returnable if I have errored in my description. Specifically, the item's metal type or karat content, the identidication or naturalness of the gemstone(s) or the accuracy of color, cut, clarity and size. Please know that the weight will vary after sizing and will not be changed from the original appraisal. To ensure the quality of most items, I have already paid for an independant GIA graduate gemologist to perform a verbal or written appraisal as verification of these details (written appraisals are included with your item). If you agree that you shall only return the ring because of an obvious error in the description (as per policy of an item being "Not As Described") and for no other reason, I shall gladly proceed with the sizing prior to mailing. F.Y.I.; Sizing does take about a week to have done so please expect a delay in the posted "Expected Delivery Date". If you are in any way concerned with the accuracy of my description and first prefer to inspect the item, I would like to suggest that I send you the ring in its current unre-sized state so you can examine it in person. Assuming it is just as described and exceeds your expectations, you can then ship it back to me fully insured. After your decission to proceed with the transaction, I will promptly have my jeweler make it to the size you have requested. I will also reimburse to you all postage costs of shipping it back with insurance for sizing as a partial refund through your original paypal payment. Please remember to include a note stating the postage & insurance fees associated with returning the packaged ring. I am sorry if this causes you any inconvienence but after my paying for an appraisal and sizing along with the time of taking it back & forth to the jeweler, you can hopefully understand why this is necessary prior to my kindly offering to have any sizing done. My greatest concern is your being completely satisfied with your purchase. If you have any further questions, please let me know prior to offerding. Kindest Regards, Bernice Ellen
