This is a beautiful diamond engagement ring! It is a ¼ ct round cut solitaire diamond set in 4 white gold prongs on a 14k yellow gold band. The diamond has been tested and the ring is stamped 14k and ¼. The diamond is beautifully cut and with a 10x loupe, I could see no inclusions. I am not a jeweler but this appears to be a higher quality diamond. I believe you will be very pleased with your purchase.
***I have just had this ring appraised and a copy of the written appraisal will be included with purchase. Here's the appraisal statement:
"14k yellow gold diamond solitaire. Ring features 1 round cut diamond weighing approximately .23ct with H in color and SI2 in clarity at 10(x). Ring weighs 1.3dwt. Replacement value $575.00."
I questioned the diamond size at .23 ct when the ring is stamped 1/4. She told me that rings will be stamped 1/4 when the diamond size ranges from .20 to .25.
