Is this black jade worth 1000?

So I know nothing about black jade but I fell in love with the setting. I think the price is steep at 1000 but there may be wiggle room? Anyhow. Thoughts? It’s 18 k gold. Single cuts. 403ECDDF-E8BA-4E49-8FE6-06C96C3071B1.jpeg

Is it definitely black jade and not onyx or another stone?

Are the diamonds nice color and eye-clean?

Yes the diamonds are gorgeous. The seller claims it’s black jade. I wouldn’t even know how to confirm that tho since I didn’t know much about black jade. Is black jade valuable?

If the diamonds are high quality and you love the ring, then I do think $1K is reasonable even if just for the setting.

I believe black jade is more expensive than onyx, but based on the ring design I guess I would have expected the stone to be onyx rather than black jade...

I would get a cert or other proof that confirms black jade before buying. So easy to confuse with onyx or black agate.

The most temperature sensitive area of the body is between the base of the nose and the upper lip. Place the stone touching there If it is jade it will be cool and stay cool to the touch. If not it will begin to warm up. I usually count to thirty. This is a good field test you can try on a piece of jade.

Personally, I believe you are paying for the setting rather than the jade.

Stunning ring! I’m no expert but I’m inclined to say onyx, that’s just a guess but whatever it is, it’s fabulous!
