What does this mean?

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

It is a beautiful vintage turmalin and diamond gold ring. Such vintage jewellery are being offered at auction on a regular basis.
The ring has a lovely and very classic design that never seems to go out of fashion. According to your description of the diamonds they are 0,25 ct each which adds up to 4,5 in total carat weight. It is hard to determine the colour and the clarity of the diamonds based on photos however all in all it adds up very nicely. The turmalin has a beautiful colour and is 13 ct which is a good size. The ring itself is made of 14 kt yellow gold.

I believe that the ring would attract the attention of both collectors and dealers if it came up for auction.
The estimate provided is for a well-advertised specialised online jewellery auction, where I believe the ring has the best chance of realising its fullest potential. However, there is no measurement for the sentimental value you might attach to the ring. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I’m happy to help.
Thank you
