Antique Store Jackpot

Antique Store Jackpot

Mynah*Bird originally posted this stunning OMC Antique Store Jackpot on the Show Me the Bling forum at PriceScope! Luck was not only a Lady, but apparently a Mynah Bird! Wow, what a find she made in this incredible antique diamond ring!

 

There are several great photos, I loved this one!

“Purchased in a local (non-jewelry) antique shop. Was for sale on consignment for an amazing price and listed as “3.5 ct antique unsymmetrical round cut stone set in platinum.” We purchased the ring on a contingency that it was a diamond with no fracture fillers and had a clarity of SI1 or better. The setting was in pretty poor shape and 2 of the prongs were badly damaged while the others were wearing dangerously thin.” said Mynah*Bird about this glorious antique piece, but it got better!

The ACTUAL Stats after inspection:
a chunky 4.21cts
and estimated as L color
Si1 (borderline Vs2) clarity

 

Goodness, may we all be so lucky! Mynah*Bird sold her original RB diamond in her engagement ring and is replacing it with this phenomenal buy! What a win!
