AN ESTATE PLATINUM &MARQUISE DIAMOND ENGAGEMENT RING!
THIS MONUMENTAL VINTAGE ~ ESTATE CLASSIC LADIES SOLID PLATINUM & REAL DIAMONDS ENGAGEMENT RING IS TRULY PHENOMENAL IN EVERY ASPECT. I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHERE TO START AS THERE ARE SO MANY AMAZING ATTRIBUTES. FIRST & FOREMOST MUST BE THE ENORMOUS, RARE, FABULOUS& BEAUTIFUL 100% NATURAL, UNENHANCED, FACETED, MARQUISE SHAPED, GENUINE DIAMOND CENTER STONE. THIS STUNNING SOLITAIRE IS BEYOND IMPRESSIVE MEASURING 10.5+mm BY 5.3+mm BY 3.7+mm (LENGTH, WIDTH & DEPTH) ~ IDEAL PORPORTIONS TO ACHIEVE THE MOST OUTSTANDINGLY VIBRANT BRILLIANCE AND SHIMMERING BRIGHT SPARKLE THAT WE ALL ADORE IN THE FINEST OF NATURAL DIAMONDS. THIS IMPORTANT DIAMOND IS NOT CLARITY ENHANCED, LASERED, DRILLED, FRACTURE FILLED OR IN ANYWAY LAB OR MAN ALTERED. IT DISPLAYS ONLY THE MASTERFUL BEAUTY THAT NATURE HERSELF INTENDED MAKING IT MANY, MANY TIMES MORE VALUEABLE THAN ANY OF THE INEXPENSIVE ENHANCED OR POOR QUALITY DIAMONDS BEING SOLD IN MALL, DEPARTMENT & CHAIN TYPE JEWELRY STORES, HOME SHOPPING CHANNELS, THE INTERNET AND REGRETABLY SO MANY SELLERS. IF A SELLER DOESN'T CLEARLY STATE THAT THE DIAMONDS THEY ARE OFFERING ARE ALL NATURAL, INCLUDING OF NATURAL COLOR OR CLAIMS NOT TO KNOW IF THE DIAMONDS THEY ARE SELLING ARE ENHANCED OR TREATED, THEN ASK PLENTY OF QUESTIONS, GET A GUARANTEE OR EVEN BETTER, SHOP WITH SOMEONE WHO UNCONDITIONALLY GUARANTEES THEIR DIAMONDS ARE GENUINE AND ENTIRELY NATURAL. IT'S WHY I HAVE ALL MY FINE JEWELRY CHECKED BY MY JEWELEROF 30 YEARS AND EVEN PAY MYSELF FOR A REAL INDEPENDENT APPRAISAL FROM A LICENSED GIA (GEMOLOGICAL INSTITUTE OF AMERICA) GRADUATE GEMOLOGIST. IT'S HOW I CAN OFFER A FULL 14 DAY RETURN POLICY UNLIKE A LOT OF OTHER SELLERS THAT STATE "NO RETURNS" OR ONLY OFFER A "3-DAY RETURN". THERE'S A REASON THOSE SELLERS DON'T ACCEPT RETURNS OR PROVIDE AN IMPOSSIBLE TO MEET 3 DAY POLICY. EVEN I CAN'T GET A GEMOLOGIST TO INSPECT A PIECE OF JEWELRY OR GET IT SENT BACK WITHIN 3 DAYS. SUCH OUTSTANDING AND LARGE ALL NATURAL DIAMONDS ARE VERY RARE AND SUPER EXPENSIVE ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU HAVE ONE THAT'S 1.3 (WELL OVER 1&1/4) CARATS IN SIZE LIKE THIS FANTASTIC MARQUISE. EVEN BETTER IS HAVING ONE OF TOP AND PERFECT "F-G" ULTRA WHITE COLOR WHICH IS WELL WITHIN THE NEAREST TO COLORLESS RANGE ON ANY DIAMOND CHART. THIS IS NOT OFF COLOR OR YELLOW, GREY, DULL AND LIFELESS BUT ONE OF THE MOST EXQUISITE DIAMONDS I'VE EVER OWNED IN THIS LARGE A SIZE OR OF SUCH A FANCY MARQUISE SHAPE. FACTOR IN THE STUNNING "SI" CLARITY RANGE ~ USING THE MOST STRINGENT OF GIA GRADING STANDARDS ~ FAR MORE STRICT THAN EGL (EUROPEAN GEMOLOGICAL LABORATORY) OR ANY OTHER GEM LABORATORY AND YOU HAVE A BREATHTAKINGLY DIAMOND WITH NOT A SINGLE VISIBLE FLAW, INCLUSION OR EVEN THE TINIEST SPECK OF BLACK CARBON TO BE FOUND. USING MY STRONG 10X (10 POWER) DIAMOND LOOP USED BY PROFESSIONAL DIAMOND DEALERS, I CAN'T FIND EVEN THE SLIGHTEST IMPERFECTION. IN OTHER WORDS, YOU'D NEED A MICROSCOPE TO FIND ANY OF THE NATURAL CHARACTERISTICS USUALLY SEEN IN 99.9% OF OTHER DIAMONDS. BESIDES THE SUPERB MARQUISE CENTER, THERE'S STILL A TON OF EXTROARDINARY 100% NATURAL, UNENHANCED, FACETED, ROUND BRILLIANT CUT & BAGUETTE SHAPED, GENUINE DIAMONDS ACCENTING THIS STUNNING SOLITAIRE. THERE ARE 8 VERY GOOD SIZED 1.8+mm TO 2.6mm EACH IN DIAMETER ROUND BRILLIANT CUTS WHICH ARE HUGE WHEN COMPARED TO THE TINY 1/2 POINTERS, FEWLY FACETED SINGLE CUTS OR LITTLE MICROSCOPIC "CHIPS" USED IN SO MUCH NEW JEWELRY NOT TO FORGET MENTIONING THAT MOST OF THE NEW ACCENTS ARE SO INFERIOR (INDUSTRIAL) QUALITY AND FILLED WITH SO MANY FLAWS, INCLUSIONS AND CARBON THAT THEY LOOK LIKE DIRTY BROKEN ICE CUBES. IN OTHER WORDS DARK, DULL AND UGLY BUT THESE SHIMMERING BRIGHT WHITE JEWELS ARE FAR SUPERIOR BEING OF UNPARALLELED TOP "VS" (FLAWLESS) CLARITY WITH A PERFECT NEAREST TO COLORLESS"G-H" GRADING MAKING EACH & EVERY ONE OF THESE FULLY FACETED BRILLIANT CUTS A SPECTACULAR TREAT BY THEMSELVES. EVERY ACCENT (ROUNG &BAGUETTE) IS INDIVIDUALLY HAND SET INTO THE STURDY AND SECURE CHANNEL MOUNT SO IT IS WELL PROTECTED FROM DAMAGE OR ACCIDENTAL LOSS. BEING CRAFTED IN ALL SOLID AND EXTRA HEAVY GUAGE REAL PLATINUM FURTHERENSURES EVER LASTING DURABILITY AS PLATINUM IS ONE OF THE HARDEST IN PRECIOUS METALS. THE FINAL INDICATOR THAT NO EXPENSE WAS SPARED IS OBVIOUSLY THE VERY SIGNIFICANT SIZED 14 ALL 100% NATURAL, UNENHANCED, FACETED, BAGUETTE SHAPED, GENUINE DIAMONDS SPECIFICALLY CUT TO FORM THE GRACEFUL TAPERING SIDECHANNELS. THIS, AGAIN, VERY GOOD SIZED FANCY BAGUETTE SHAPED NATURAL DIAMONDS EACH MEASURE 2mm TO 2.8mm IN LENGTH AND ARE OF IDEALLY MATCHING "G-H" EXTRA WHITE COLOR AND SENSATIONAL TOP "VS" (FLAWLESS) CLARITY. THESE EXTROARDINARY ACCENTS ADD ANOTHER 70 POINTS (ALMOST 3/4 CARATS) IN DIAMOND WEIGHT FOR A GRAND TOTAL OF 2 FULL CARATS OF THE MOST OUTSTANDING, LIVELY & BRILLIANTLY PERFECT DIAMONDS. IT'S ACTUALLY BECOMING VERY HARD TO EVEN BUT REAL ALL NATURAL DIAMONDS NOW THAT SO MANY NEW JEWELERS HAVE TRADED IN THEIR STANDARDS OF HIGH QUALITY FOR THE GREED OF HIGH PROFITS EVEN SENDING THEIR COMMISSION BASED SALES STAFF TO SPECIAL SEMINARS TRAINING THEM HOW TO LIE OR AVOID DISCLOSING THAT THE DIAMONDS THEY ARE SELLING TO UNSAVY CUSTOMERS ARE NOTHING MORE THAN WORTHLESS ENHANCED, TREATED, LASER DRILLED, FRACTURE FILLED WITH RESIN (GLUE) OR HEATED AND LAB/MAN MANIPULATED JUNK DIAMONDS. IT'S WHY ONE WILL NEVER GO WRONG BUYING THE FINEST IN HIGH QUALITY ESTATE ~ VINTAGE & ANTIQUE FINE JEWELRY THAT'S SET WITH ONLY ALL 100% NATURAL GEMS. EACH OF THESE DIAMONDS IS OF OUTSTANDING QUALITY AND 100% NATURAL WITH NO ENHANCEMENTS. THERE'S A BIG DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TRUE NATURAL AND UNENHANCED DIAMONDS SUCH AS THESE AND THE INFERIOR ENHANCED DIAMONDS ONE TYPICALLY FINDS IN THE POOR QUALITY JEWELRY MADE NOW-A-DAYS OFFERED IN ALL MALL & DEPARTMENT JEWELRY STORES ALSO BEING SOLD ALL OVER THE INTERNET. 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. NOT ONLY IS THIS RING ADORNED WITH SOME OF THE MOST EXQUISITE ALL 100% NATURAL DIAMONDS, EXACTLY2 CARATS OF THESE RARE AND PRECIOUS JEWELS BUT THE ENTIRE RING IS FINELY CRAFTED WITH EXCEPTIONAL DETAILING IN ALL SOLID, RARE & THE MOST COSTLY OF PRECIOUS JEWELRY GRADE METALS ~ PLATINUM! THIS IS ALL SOLID, NOT HOLLOW CAST LIKE NEW JEWELRY WHICH SAVE THE JEWELERS A SMALL FORTUNE BUT MAKES THEIR NEW JEWELRY VERY FLIMSY AND LIGHTWEIGHT CAUSING THESE HOLLOW CAST MOUNTINGS TO CRACK, DENT, BEND AND BREAK EASILY UNLIKE THIS RING WHICH IS CREATED WITH EXTRA HEAVY, SUPER HEFTY CUSTOM CRAFTED REAL & SOLID PLATINUM. THIS BEYOND SUPERIOR SOLID PLATINUM MOUNTING IS SO FINELY DETAILED AND SO WELL MADE THAT THE RING ACTUALLY WEIGHS AN UNBELIEVABLE 11.1 GRAMS. THAT'S WELL OVER 1/3 TROY OUNCE OF RARE AND COSTLY PLATINUM. F.Y.I., PLATINUM IS ABOUT DOUBLE THE PRICE OF 14KT GOLD MAKING THIS RING EQUIVILENT TO A 14KT GOLD RING WITH A WEIGHT OF OVER 2/3 TROY OUNCE. GOOD LUCK FINDING ANY NEW RING WITH SUCH A SUPERLATIVE WEIGHT ESPECIALLY IN SUCH EXPENSIVE A METAL AS PLATINUM. NOT ONLY IS EVERY ASPECT OF THIS RING BEYOND COMPARISON TO ANYTHING MADE NOW-A-DAYS AND I'M INCLUDING WHAT ONE CAN FIND EVEN IN THE MOST EXCLUSIVE OF HIGH END RETAIL JEWELRY STORES SUCH AS TIFFANY & CO, CARTIER OR THE FINE JEWELRY COUNTER AT NEIMAN MARCUS BUT EVEN THE CUSTOM ONE OF A KIND DESIGN IS EXTROARDINARY.I MUST CONFESS THAT THIS IS MY ALL TIME FAVORITE MARQUISE WITH ITS' HIGH SET PRONG MOUNTED HEAD ESPECIALLY DESIGNED TO ALL AMPLE LIGHT TO REFRACT AND BOUNCE OUT OF THE DIAMOND TO CREATE A BLINDING SPARKLE. TALK ABOUT A SHOW STOPPER, THIS IS IT! THE ELEGANT AND SCULPTURAL ALMOST MODERNISTIC FLOWING DESIGN IS SUMPTUOUS AND SETS THIS MILES APART FROM THE RUN OF THE MILL MASS PRODUCED DESIGNS FOUND EVERWHERE TODAY. IT'S WHY I FELL IN LOVE WITH THIS MASTERPIECE NEARLY 20 YEARS AGO. THIS CLASSICAL 1980'S ORIGINAL CREATION IS SPECTACULAR IN EVERY WAY, SHAPE AND FORM WHICH SURELY MAKES THE GIA GRADUATE GEMOLOGIST'S APPRAISAL WITH AN ESTIMATED RETAIL REPLACEMENT VALUE FROM INSURANCE PURPOSES OF $21,516.00 QUITE UNDERSTANDABLE ESPECIALLY IF YOU'VE PRICED NEW RINGS OF ANY SIMILARITY. I'VE SEEN PLENTY OF JUST 1 CARAT DIAMONDS SET IN SIMPLE GOLD SOLITAIRE MOUNTINGS PRICED AT WELL OVER $20,000.00 BUT NEVER BEFORE OR AGAIN WILL I EVER FIND ANYTHING AS WONDERFUL AND UNIQUE AS THIS PHENOMENALLY CREATIVE & ARTISTICALLY DESIGNED ENGAGEMENT RING. IT'S WHY I HAVE HELD ONTO IT FOR ALMOST 2 DECADES AS ONE OF MY OWN PERSONAL FAVORITES. FROM THE FIRST MOMENT I SAW THIS, WHEN HANDLING THE ESTATE OF A TOP BEVERLY HILLS PLASTIC SURGEON'S WIFE, I WAS IN AWE AND PRAYING THE HEIRS WOULDN'T MAKE ME TAKE IT OFF MY FINGER. BACK THEN, I WAS A 4.75 (4&3/4) RING SIZE WHICH MADE ITA PERFECT FIT. I HAVE FELT SO PRIVILAGED TO BE BLESSED WITH SO MANY BEAUTIFUL THINGS IN LIFE WHICH IS WHY I NOW, AT AGE 83, HAVE DECIDED TO SHARE MY MOST PRECIOUS OF POSSESSIONS, THIS AMAZING 2 CARAT T.W. DIAMOND & SOLID PLATINUM RING, WITH ALL OF YOU, MY FAVORITE FRIENDS AND FELLOW DIAMOND LOVING COLLECTORS IN A SPECIAL NEVER TO BE SEEN AGAIN, REAL sale.

*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
