Story

Why does a diamond shine? Reflection, refraction and dispersion are three key words in the explanation. To put it simply, light hits the facets and some of it bounces (reflects) back with a gleam. The rest of it enters into the internal crystalline latticework of the diamond which them scatters and fractures (refracts) the light into those sparkles. Now remember that the light is still moving around inside the diamond and consequently goes back out through the top surface of the diamond. This effect is dispersion and breaks up the light into that prismatic rainbow effect. Add the three effects together and you have a diamond to appreciate.

This round brilliant diamond of 1.4 carats provides a most spectacular show of color, light and shine. It may be the quintessential diamond which any number of little dreams dream of wearing. Graded L color and SI1 for clear inclusions only, the centered diamond is flanked by six (6) single cut diamonds, three on each shoulder for an additional estimated weight of .09 carats. Split shoulders add a touch of visual interest to the icy platinum mounting.

If you're looking for a big show this is for you. Clean, tailored and chic, it almost every light it looks white and staggeringly dazzling! Won't last. Make her say yes!

The ring is accompanied by an EGL USA certificate indicating that the center diamond has been removed for accurate weight and grade.

Date: Circa 1960.
