I''ve been lurking on this site for a couple years now, and am VERY grateful for all of the guidance and advice on diamonds I''ve learned from reading this forum regularly. I''ve finally decided to post because I just finished putting putting together a very unique engagement ring with a very limited budget. The appraisal appointment isn''t until next week, so I don''t know how much the final value of the ring will be, but my very biased estimate would be around $7,500. The process all started about a year ago when I found an absolutely beautiful platinum cocktail ring on eBay. To me it looks like a spiralling galaxy, so as a guess only, I''m thinking it might be 1950s era. What''s your impression? The stones are single cut, eye clean, and very white. The setting is cast platinum.
