This high quality ring is crafted in luxurious 18K solid gold. It features a stylized flower adorned with 8 split size diamonds measuring approximately 1mm each, and whose pistil is a natural bezel set round cut diamond measuring approximately 2.5mm. The flower is positioned on a very large black onyx plaque which forms the face of the ring and which, with the haloed diamonds, measures ~25mmx13mm.

This is a most attractive ring. All the diamonds are very clean VS1-VVS2 and colorless (F-G). Their total weight is approximately 0.17cttw. Their vividness contrasts beautifully with the with glossy black onyx.

The solid bright yellow gold shank features the eagle head assay mark. It is plain, and there is enough material to allow some resizing. The ring is in excellent estate condition with no loss of stones and no scratching, and showing very little use.

With its massive 8g of solid gold, and its 2.5cm in length, the ring has been adjusted to fit perfectly on your finger. The craftsman has rounded the end of the table so as to fit comfortably. This is a beautiful ring when jewelry becomes a work of art.
