Vintage Combined Wedding Ring Set
The ring is a vintage wedding ring set combined into one by a 14k yellow gold split-shoulder hinged arthritic shank with bottom center hidden buckle-like safety catch. The size 6-1/2 ring tapers in width from 13.7mm top center down to 3.10mm bottom center. The shoulders and center settings of the Art Deco wedding set test 18k white gold. The engagement portion of the ring has a center row of 2 round cut diamonds individually set in four-prong square settings. One diamond is a round brilliant cut measuring 4.88m x 2.92mm in diameter and depth, and it weighs 0.42 carat estimated by formula. It is VS1 in clarity and appears to be F-G in color with no fluorescence. It has very good polish and very good symmetry. The other diamond is a circular brilliant cut (sometimes referred to as an early or transitional round brilliant cut) measuring 4.75-4.78 x 2.70mm in diameter and depth, and it weighs 0.39ct. estimated by formula. It is VS1 in clarity (it has a microscopic shallow chip along the edge) and appears to be J in color with no fluorescense. It has very good polish and good symmetry. They are surrounded by an oval halo of 12 pave' set single cut diamonds. They measure 1.40-2.00mm in diameter and they are estimated to weigh 0.01-0.03 ct. each. They are VS1-SI1 in clarity and they appear to be E-F in color. Total estimated diamond weight in the engagement cluster is 1.09 ct. The band portion of the ring has a contoured row of 8 single cut diamonds in fishtail style prong settings with an inner millegrain edge. The diamonds measure 1.50mm in diameter and they are estimated to weigh 0.015ct. each, totaling 0.12ct. They are VS1-SI2 in clarity (1 has a microscopic chip) and they appear to be E-F in color. Total estimated diamond weight is 1.21ct. The combined gold is estimated to weigh 3.38 pennyweights. The ring was cast, assembled and handset with a bright polished finish. The ring is in good condition (the buckle catch on the shank needs to be adjusted to lock properly and the settings have some wear and tear from age).
Estimated Retail Replacement Cost: $3,849.00
My husband found this ring on the beach when he was a teenager. It was very dirty and old looking, but he held on to it in a keepsake box. When he joined the navy, he gave all of his possessions away, including the ring.
Several years later, he separated from the Navy and now we are raising funds as full-time missionaries. The lady he gave the ring to had it appraised and felt compelled to donate it to help us raise our funds. As you can imagine, he was shocked to learn for how much the ring was appraised!
