THIS ELEGANT SIGNED "AVAK" FOR AVAKIAN JEWELERS OF GENEVE, NEW YORK, LONDON & BEVERLY HILLS LADIES RING IS OF A SPECTACULAR MODERNIST DESIGN BEING CRAFTED IN ALL SOLID (NOT HOLLOW CAST LIKE NEW JEWELRY) 14KT REAL YELLOW GOLD WITH AN IMPRESSIVE WEIGHT OF 8.6 GRAMS (THAT'S APPROACHING 1/3 OUNCE) WHICH YOU'LL NEVER FIND IN ANY OF THE LIGHTWEIGHT ANDMASS PRODUCED JEWELRY MADE TODAY WITH GOLD WELL ABOVE $1,600.00 PER TROY OUNCE. IT'S A TRUE SIGN OF QUALITY BY ONE OF THE WORLD'S FINEST JEWELERS, AFTERALL THIS IS HIGH END BOUTIQUE DESIGNER JEWELRY ON PAR WITH CARTIER, TIFFANY & CO OR ANY TOP NAME DESIGNER OF NOW-A-DAYS. THE MASTERFULLY CRAFTED AND EVER SO HEFTY RING IS SPECIFICALLY CREATED WITH AN ANGULAR BAND SO THAT IT WON'T TILT OR TIP OVER ON THE FINGER WHICH IS OFTEN A PROBLEM WITH TOP HEAVY RINGS BUT AVAKIAN THOUGHT OF EVERYTHING WHEN CREATING THIS STUNNING CREATION. BESIDES THE HEAVY GOLD AND MAGNIFICENT DESIGN, THE QUALITY OF GEM IS EQUALLY SPECTACULAR WITH THE CENTER CONTAINING A TENSION SET LARGE & IMPORTANT NEAREST TO FLAWLESS IDEAL MEDIUM PINK COLOR NATURAL, OVAL SHAPED, FACETED, GENUINE TOURMALINE GEMSTONE MEASURING 11.78mm BY 8.91mm BY 7.51mm (LENGTH, WIDTH & DEPTH) WITH A WEIGHT OF 3.61 (ABOUT 3&2/3) CARATS. THIS BEAUTIFUL GEM IS SO TRANSLUCENT WHICH IS RARELY FOUND IN PINK TOURMALINE. USUALLY, THE PINK TOURMALINES OF SMALL SIZE, WHICH ARE STILL VERY SELDOM FOUND IN MALL, CHAIN OR DEPARTMENT TYPE JEWELRY STORES APPEAR SO HEAVILY FLAWED AND INCLUDED THAT YOU CAN'T EVEN SEE THROUGH THEM ~ JEWELERS CALL THIS "NATURAL CHARACTERISTICS" THEIR NICE WAY OF SAYING "JUNK" GEMSTONE BUT THIS IS ALMOST CRYSTAL CLEAR WITH ONLY ONE SLIGHT INCLUSION HIDDEN BY THE FACETS. IT'S SIMPLY AN OUTSTANDING EXAMPLE AND OF EXCELLENT SIZE, CUT & CLARITY NOT TO FORGET, THE EXQUISITE PINK EVEN COLOR SATURATION! YOU'LL SIMPLY NOT FIND A BETTER RING ESPECIALLY BY SUCH AN IMPORTANT DESIGNER. I'VE HANDLED THE FINEST IN ESTATE ~ VINTAGE & ANTIQUE JEWELRY MY ENTIRE LIFE ~ FIRST FOR MY GRANDPARENTS, THEN MY OWN PARENTS AND EVENTUALLY MY OWN STORES FOR OVER 3 DECADES. I'VE BEEN RETIRED FOR SOME YEARS BUT I ONLY KEPT THE VERY BEST JEWELRY FOR MYSELF AND THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE AND FINEST PINK TOURMALINE & DIAMOND RINGS. SPEAKING OF DIAMONDS, THIS RING ALSO CONTAINS 4 GOOD SIZED (ALMOST 3mm EACH IN DIAMETER) CHANNEL SET ALL 100% NATURAL, UNENHANCED, FACETED, ROUND, BRILLIANT CUT, GENUINE DIAMONDS ADDING ANOTHER 37 POINTS (WELL OVER 1/3 CARAT) IN DIAMOND WEIGHT. THESE ARE VERY FINE DIAMONDS WITH A TRUE WHITE "I" COLOR AND FINE "SI" CLARITY WITH NO VISIBLE FLAWS, INCLUSIONS OR SPECKS OF BLACK CARBON. THEY ARE NOT THE UGLY FROSTY INDUSTRIAL GRADE JUNK FROM CHINA THAT LOOKS LIKE CRUSHED ICE BUT BRIGHT WHITE SHIMMERING DIAMONDS WITH TONS OF LIFE AND A VIBRANT BRILLIANCY. THERE'S A GRAND TOTAL (PINK TOURMALINE + DIAMONDS) OF 3.98 (ABOUT 4) CARATS OF PRECIOUS AND RARE NATURAL GEMS. THESE INCREDIBLE INDICATORS OF QUALITY ARE JUST WHAT ONE EXPECTS WHEN SHOPPING RODEO DRIVE AND GREAT VALIDATION FOR THE GIA (GEMOLOGICAL INSTITUTE OF AMERICA) GRADUATE GEMOLOGIST'S INSURANCE EVALUATION APPRAISAL WITH AN ESTIMATED RETAIL REPLACEMENT VALUE OF $5,986.00. IT'S ALMOST THAT MUCH JUST TO PARK IN BEVERLY HILLS LET ALONE LEAVE A JEWELRY STORE WITH SUCH A PRIZED AND GORGEOUS PIECE OF FINE GOLD & GEMSTONE JEWELRY! IT'S JUST ANOTHER REASON I LOVE FINE ESTATE ~ VINTAGE & ANTIQUE JEWELRY AS YOU GET SO MUCH MORE, OF SUCH A BETTER QUALITY, SUPERB WORKMANSHIP & ATTENTION TO DETAIL ALONG WITH HEAVY GOLD THAT'S DURABLE BEING MADE TO LAST A LIFETIME WITH THE INTENT THAT IT SHALL BE ENJOYED BY FUTURE GENERATIONS OF FINE JEWELRY LOVERS.
