This item is extremely RARE!! It is no longer in general circulation and no exact replacement has been located in many years. Stone weights were estimated for an appraisal by using available measurements and were not removed from the mounting for weighing. The grading of the diamonds is provisional and may not match laboratory grading reports because the mounting and lighting may influence color causing potential grading variances. This is a normal variance in the estimation process.
