Talk to a GIA trained Jewelry Specialist
Why Talking Is a Good Idea
Buying jewelry online is intimidating. We should know. We've been selling online for 17 years.
We've taken a totally different approach. A personal one.
Remember how experiences used to be intimate? Jewelry buying should be an intimate experience.
It isn't about having the largest selection, or selling the cheapest (i.e. low quality) jewelry. We’re not aiming to be the Amazon of jewelry. We are a family-owned jewelry store in Modesto (California) that is very picky about quality and design. That's been our calling card since 1989.
Beautiful jewelry should stir the soul. Before selecting a piece for display we ask, “How does this design make me feel?”
In a world of infinite choice, it’s nice to slow down and appreciate the work of master craftsmen.
Don’t use your credit card to buy this. Not yet.
It’s 5:40 AM in Modesto right now. Call us and see why we fell in love with this piece. One shouldn’t ever have to buy jewelry online without asking all your questions first. Oh, that’s right, that’s what makes us different from the thousands of online jewelry sites out there.
When you call you aren’t talking to an agent in a call center. Your talking to either Ron Yates, Ashton Yates-Woolley, Marissa Stewart, Mechelle Yates, or Justice Carillo at our Modesto store location.
This is a 3 stone diamond ring with big bonus. Notice the halo surrounding the three main diamonds. Throwing off glittering sparkle from every angle!
All three center diamonds are antique Old European Cut. This is the style of diamond cutting for round diamonds back in the 1940s and earlier. It is a fascinating cut - characterized by smaller tables, higher crowns and larger facets. All of this creates a unique look compared to modern cut diamonds.
The center diamond is estimated at .72ct (measures 5.84 x 5.81 x 3.44mm), is VS clarity, and I - J in color. The side diamonds are estimated at .54ct and .55ct (measuring 5.18 and 5.28mm average diameter). They match the center one very well at VS clarity and I - J color. They face up very white. (Because of the cut style, Old European Cut diamonds typically have an apparent face-up color 1 to 2 color grades higher than if viewed from the side. But who views a diamond from the side??)
Surrounding the three center diamonds, one the border of the top of the ring, are twenty small .02ct diamonds. Nineteen of these are single cut diamonds, typically used as accent diamonds back in the day. But one of them has been replaced with a modern round brilliant. These are nice bright and white diamonds. Lots of sparkle!
The ring is crafted in precious platinum, the preferred choice of higher end jewelers during this time. If you look closely at the edges of the ring you will notice hand chased milgrain detail - another characteristic of finer vintage jewelry. The ring is in immaculate condition.
Ring is size 7.5. Total carat weight is estimated, by formula, at 2.21ctw. It's a showstopper.
