Product Feature: GIA Certified 3.98 Carat Pear Shape Diamond Three Stone Platinum Engagement Ring
At Samuelson’s, we specialize in evaluating and purchasing estate, vintage, and heirloom jewelry. Estate jewelry is a term used for any jewelry given to you or passed on through generations. The beauty of estate jewelry is that it can be given a second (or third or seventh) chance at life.
Some of our favorite designers are Cartier, Tiffany & Co., Van Cleef & Arpels, Bvlgari, David Webb, and more. However, we also love finding those special creations that are one-of-a-kind, such as this stunning 3.98 carat pear-shaped diamond engagement ring, set in platinum. Accompanied by two trillion-cut diamonds, the ring is a dazzling knockout.
Haven’t heard of a trillion-cut diamond before? It’s a diamond that is cut in the shape of a triangle with equal length sides and a flat table. Thanks to its long sides, trillion-cut diamonds can actually appear larger than they actually are, making them popular choices for side and accent stones. Combined with the 3.98 carat pear-shaped diamond at the center of the piece, the piece is an attention-getter for sure.
What makes it extra special is that the ring itself only weighs 8.75 grams — less than a third of an ounce or .02 pounds. It’s a deceptive design that looks bigger than it actually is, which is never a bad thing if you’re looking to shine!
The center pear-cut stone was rated by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) as nearly colorless, though GIA did note the presence of inclusions. Not sure what these rankings mean? Check out our guide to the 4 C’s! The two accent stones weigh in at 1 carat and are also classified as nearly colorless. Since colorless diamonds are scarce, they are able to command a higher price per-carat.
Pear-shaped diamonds are cut in a certain way to reflect light outwards, ensuring that there will always be sparkle when you wear this ring out and about. We recommend wearing it with the point of the pear facing outward toward your nail for an elongated appearance, which will have the benefit of making this optical illusion-sized ring look even bigger! If big and bold is your thing, then this is the perfect ring for you.
The platinum setting also ensures that your ring won’t tarnish, making it incredibly durable — which is likely why this ring appears in such fantastic shape despite its history. While we don’t know exactly what period it came from, we can certainly make some guesses. We’re always happy to talk about jewelry with our customers!
Interested in checking it out firsthand? Make an appointment to see the ring in our store! You can also buy it online and rest assured that our free shipping includes overnight service so your ring is only in transit for a very short period of time. Have more questions? Reach out to us and let us know! We’d love to hear from you.
