Lot 2430 - 15 May 2018
Spring Fine Auction
A platinum, emerald and diamond set three stone ring, claw set with the circular cut emerald at the centre, weight approximately 2.40 cts, between two pear shaped diamonds, each weight approximately 1.00 cts, ring size N, with a Mappin & Webb case and a box. Illustrated
The emerald measures approximately 0.9cm wide x 1cm high x 0.35/0.4cm deep, it is relatively shallow (compared to the setting), which affects the depth of colour. There are one or two nicks/nibbles to the girdle, and several to the upper facet edges. One principle surface scratch to the table facet, further more minor surface scratches. Internal inclusions throughout. The diamonds are attractive white stones, with one or two internal inclusions. There is some dirt in behind the settings of the diamonds; the overall appearance would benefit from professional cleaning. The shank has started to wear very slightly thin at the back from contact with other rings, some lights signs of wear to the metal.
