This gorgeous ring will simply take your breath away... It is made out of 18K solid gold in two different tones -- bright yellow and white. It features two swirling elements curving gracefully around the central diamond and enhancing its beauty. There is a dynamic quality about their embrace. It invites the eyes to follow their path leading to a center stone as it continues to swirl around in a movement that never seems to end.
The main stone is cut the old European way and is of excellent quality. It is approximately 0.25ct and H-VS2 q. The 24 supporting embellishments are rose-cut and in graduated sizes. They are perfectly matched and account for an approximate additional 0.30cttw They packed a lot of glittering power. They all range VVS2-VS1 in clarity and H-J in color.
This is a stunningly elegant ring, and an alternative to the modern engagement ring. Their never-ending movement characterized a love that never ends.
The ring is fully hallmarked and in excellent condition
