Spring is always in bloom when you have a blossom crafted straight from the natural elements provided by the artist known as Mother Earth. With these materials, masters of the trade have selected the most suitable jewels and metals, to combine them in a craftsmanship not frequently seen. Set with a total weight of 3.07cts. worth of white and coloured diamonds, this exuberant piece combines a mix of white and rose 18k gold to perfectly compliment and accent the palette utilized.
While primarily displayed as a ring, the underside of the setting has been macgyvered with a custom clip to attach, or remove the diamond band, so the embellished top can be worn as a pendant. Undoubtedly, the focal point of this piece is the vivacious, cushion cut, fancy light yellow-green, natural diamond, held within the 18k rose gold claws, and juxtaposed by a double halo of pink surrounding it. This 1.11ct. GIA graded stone features aesthetic qualities stated as “even colour distribution” and a “strong blue fluorescence”.
In terms of internal qualities, this coloured diamond is gauged with SI-2 clarity and good cut, which are perfectly viewed by the spready table that measures 5.59 x 5.48 x 3.80mm. The girdle of the centrefold is laser inscribed with a unique serial number, allotted by GIA which can be cross referenced on the GIA website (https://www.gia.edu/report-check-landing) using the document number provided in the paperwork.
Claw-set within the rose gold of the silhouetting double halo are a total of fifty claw set round brilliant cut diamonds. These stones have approximate measurements of 1.00 – 0.80 x 0.56mm, but despite their dainty size, they are sure to pack a shimmering, colourful punch. Weighing an approximate total weight of 0.14ct., these fancy light pink stones present qualities by gauge of SI-1 to I-1 clarity and Very Good cut.
Following the pink rounds, a mix of two pear and six round cut diamonds make up each individual petal sprouting from the pistil. The six round brilliant cut diamonds have an approximate total weight of 0.78ct., and approximate measurements of 3.40 – 3.18 x 1.98mm, giving enough space to show off the colourless F grading, accented by the Good cut, and crystal-clear VS-1 to VS-2 clarity.
The two pear cut diamonds feature the same cut and clarity, with near colourless gradings of G-H, shown off by the 4.00 x 2.64 x 1.66mm measurements. Both stones weigh a total of 0.20cts. Surrounding each petal is a defining, scalloped border, made of dainty round brilliant cut, claw-set, diamonds.
Stemming from beneath the gallery, the 5.70mm band curves and entwines itself like growing vines, absolutely dripping in twinkling opulence. Between the outer border and the band, there are a total of one hundred forty-two round brilliant cut, stark white diamonds. These stones have an approximate total weight of 0.84ct., and approximate ranging measurements of 1.55 – 0.90 x 0.74mm.
Though small in their size, that doesn’t hinder their snowy F-G complexion, crystal clear VS-1 to SI-1 clarity or shimmering Very Good cut.
