Lavish Turquoise and Diamond Ring
A large cabochon of aqua turquoise is the leading lady in this Tony award-winning “Broadway show” of precious gems and gold. Her credits are as follows: 9.2 mm by 12.3 mm by 4.2 mm deep turquoise with approximately 3.52 carats of total star power. A very strong supporting cast boasts thirteen (13) old mine cut diamonds of approximately .07 carats apiece with a total diamond estimated weight of .91 carats. The diamond gem surround has a color range between G-I and clarity of SI-VS. The total cast has been dressed in matching costumes of 14k yellow gold. The turquoise diva birthstone of December deserves a Brava!
