This is an absolutely gorgeous 1.80ct Genuine Natural Smokey Quartz ring in Sterling Silver. This is a beautiful vintage inspiring design with.This ring has hand carved filigree detailed miligrain etchings that are out of this world!! This smokey quartz gemstone is earth mined and 100% natural and does NOT have any treatments whatsoever. It has been laboratory tested to insure its genuineness and was given a clarity of "VVS1" and is "Extremely Eye Clean"!! This is not your usual gemstone that was given it's name by the color of the stone. I guarantee this gem to be Real and Genuine and has been tested with many gemological instruments to insure it's quality. The stone is a round cut and is securely prong set. It's very rare to find a gemstone of this size that is so clean!! It looks so much better in person than in the picture. The pictures cannot even begin to show you all the small details that have been hand carved.
This ring is BRAND NEW!! It is a size 6.25 and is re-sizable by your local jeweler. The entire ring weighs 1.71grams! The band is 1.08mm. Any black marks (shadow of the cut) or lint from the gem jar that may be seen in the pictures is NOT on the gem!
I have many other rings and pendants similar to this one with different gemstones!! SINCE CLARITY VARIES WIDELY FROM JEWELER TO JEWELER, THE CLARITY MAY BE HIGHER OR LOWER DEPENDING ON THE JEWELER!
STOCK PHOTO PICTURES USUALLY HAVE A WHITE BACKGROUND AND THEY ARE NOT THE ACTUAL ITEM YOU WILL RECEIVE. THEY DON'T SHOW YOU THE REAL COLOR OF THE DIAMONDS AND/OR GEMSTONE NOR THE VISIBLE INCLUSIONS.THEY OFTEN LOOK LIKE PERFECT PICTURES! People in other countries don't have to adhere to the strict rules and guidelines that the US has regarding diamonds. In the US we DO NOT use the letters AAA as a GRADE for diamonds.
How can you give it a grade if you can't see through it to see what grade it would be? In the US the word GRADE is not used for diamonds. We use a CLARITY system for diamonds that is either IF, VVS, VS, SI, I and the word OPAQUE for black diamonds because you cannot see through the black diamond to give it a clarity. Some countries use the word "diamond" for any gemstone or cz. For example, a red gemstone or cz would be called a red diamond, a green gemstone or cz would be called a green diamond etc.
That's the language they use. This is why you see so many gemstones or cz's being called a diamond. In the US we cannot use the word diamond unless it is a real genuine diamond that passes the US rules and guidelines. The word diamond cannot be used for a gemstone or cz.
With all that being said 90% of all real diamonds do come from other countries so the more information that you have the better you can make an informed decison when purchasing a diamond.
