It is a beautiful engagement ring. Such vintage diamond rings are being offered at auction on a regular basis.
The design of the ring is extraordinary with a beautiful very elegant and classic design. It is the type of ring that never goes out of fashion. It is very smart with the emerald cut and baguette cut diamonds. This is the type of ring that would attract the attention of both collectors and dealers if it came up for auction.
The size of the ring and the material used for the ring is signs of good quality which is reflected in the price. However this is an auction price which is much lower compared to an insurance value.
The estimate provided is for a well-advertised specialised jewellery auction, where I believe the lovely diamond ring has the best chance of realising its fullest potential. However, there is no measurement for the sentimental value you might attach to the lovely diamond engagement ring.
Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I’m happy to help.
