RARE DIAMOND RING COULD SELL FOR OVER 50,000

Are you looking for that special gift for Christmas or perhaps getting engaged soon? How about a rare and impressive dazzling diamond ring. You will need deep pockets though as this ring is expected to sell for over £50,000 when it comes up for auction this month.

The ring was purchased from a jeweller in Stratford by the current owners fathers in the late 1960’s and handed down to his daughter who hasn’t worn it since her daughter got married some 12 years ago. She has now decided to sell it. Auctioneer Paul Keen visited her at her home near Taunton, “when the ring box was opened this magnificent diamond just lit up”.

“We have auctioned many large diamond  but never one of this size!, it weighs an impressive 8.35 carats, more than double the size of the largest ring that we have sold”

The ring actually dates from the Art Deco period, 1920 to 1930 and this can be seen in the style of the white gold setting. The stone is further enhanced by the arrangement of 16 further baguette diamonds set within breaking wave motif within double shoulder section and also 8 more small round diamonds.

This may seem a lot of money for a ring; however it was recently valued for insurance purposes at £170,000 so it’s still a bargain!. Auction 30th November.
