Rare & Fiery 20th C. Oval Diamond Ring
The oval cut diamond was created in 1957 by Lazare Kaplan. A variation of the round brilliant diamond, the oval cut has an elongated or elliptical shape. Presented here in a mid to later 20th century example, the 1.04 carat diamond featured has a D color, the highest demarcation possible reflecting a gem which is absolutely colorless and extremely rare. The colorless diamond shows off the qualities of the cut perfectly. With a SI1 clarity, this oval gem brilliantly reflects light. On each shoulder of the platinum mount, a brace of marquise cut diamonds and a single cut add just the right accent.
The ring has a total diamond weight of 1.34 carats of fire and light and is accompanied by gemological lab certificate (see "Measurements & More").
Measurements: 1/4 of an inch (0.6 cm) in length north to south on the hand and rises 3/16 of an inch (0.4 cm) in height off the finger. Weight of 3.7 grams (2.4 dwt).
Ring Size: Between US 5-3/4 and 6 (UK L; Int. Dia. 16.5; Euro 52 mm; Japan 11) and can be easily sized to fit most. Ring sizing information.
Hallmarks: “10% Irid Plat”.
Condition: Excellent; evidence of old resizing visible with magnification.

Note 1: Main diamond has been removed from its mount for accurate weight and grading. Accent diamonds have not been removed to preserve the integrity of the setting. All accent diamond weights have been approximated by measurement and formula and may vary from actual weights. Grading of accent diamonds has been done in situ and also may vary if stones are removed.
Note 2: This ring comes with a Gemological Institute of America (GIA) certificate.
Historical Notes: Lazare Kaplan International, now located on Fifth Avenue in New York City is a diamond cutting and manufacturing company founded in 1903 in Antwerp, Belgium by its namesake Lazare Kaplan. In 1914 he was visiting his mother who had previously moved to America when Europe became a war zone. He was unable to return at all to his native Belgium and consequently had to start his diamond business from scratch. Today the firm is currently the largest manufacturers of diamonds in the United States.
