Latest Vintage Piece

1.50ct. I2-LM radiant cut diamond ring, 94=0.55ct. tw. VS-GH, 4.9gr., sz. 6, $4,620.00 CAD. 101-00335

Here is a fantastic engagement ring with a fantastical appraisal accompanying it! According to the appraisal, the 1.50 carat radiant cut diamond that crowns this ring is an SI2-F. If you have even the most basic understanding of diamonds, you’ll know colour grades considered colourless are DEF. Looking at these pictures would you say this diamond is colourless? It clearly has a pleasant, warm light brown hue to it, making it an LM colour grade, 6-7 colour grades lower than the described F. An SI2 clarity grade means the inclusions are minimal, just bordering on visible without magnification. This diamond does display large areas that are free from any inclusions, but it also displays several inclusions that are easily spotted without magnification. By GIA (Gemological Institute of America) standards would define this diamond as I2, two clarity grades lower than an SI2. Even if we were living in the fairytale land where this diamond is an SI2-F a replacement value for the diamond alone would be somewhere around $15,000. This leaves $28,822.00 of the retail replacement value (totaling $43,822.00) listed on this document, for the ring itself. This is a beautiful engagement ring, made from a solid 4.9 grams of 14 karat white gold, set with 94 top quality round brilliant cut diamonds of VS-GH quality, but there is no way this ring (without the centre diamond) could ever be worth $28,822.00. We feel a competitive retail replacement value for the entire ring including its center diamond is $6,600.00 CAD. Our estate price for the like-new piece is $4,620.00 CAD. Stock #101-00335.
