We first saw this diamond when it was in a strange, hodgepodge mounting. It has this murky, odd kind of glow to it on overcast days because it is exceptionally fluorescent. The diamond is super-tall and is cut like a cube with the top lopped flat. It is a table-cut, probably cut in the 17th century by hand. We think it is seriously cool in its weirdness. Some tell-tales were there, and we recognized it as being a diamond. This is a very old and odd diamond that we did not find any reason to recut. The stone is set in a square bezel, atop a thick 18K yellow half round band. The owner of this ring is a sailor and cannot wear anything that will get caught on anything. Her life depends on it!
As always, pricing depends on the mounting/ stone size and many other factors. This is probably a $5.200 ring, if cuts and fluorescence do no matter to you on a 1.14 ct stone. Some diamonds that are considered to be of a "poor" cut grade make up for it in many other ways.
