Important Jade Ring with Diamonds Midcentury Untreated

About

This substantial 18k yellow gold ring features a large (19.1 mm X 13.8 mm X 3.90 mm) Burmese jadeite jade cabochon of vivid apple-green coloring and high translucency —a superb, old-mine stone. The sides of the ring feature a pair of white and nearly flawless (F, VS) brilliant-cut pear-shaped diamonds weighing a combined total of *at least* 1 carat. I measured them in the setting and was extremely conservative in my calculations. Jadeite of this color, translucency and fine-grain is highly uncommon. Both "apple green" and "imperial green" are layman's terms to describe the top two colorings of fine jadeite jade. Imperial jade is green without any yellow. Just a touch of yellow and you have the green you see here, a bright, lively stone. This ring was created circa 1965 by a Los Angeles jeweler named George Barmache. The ring was originally created for a man but of course, it's for anyone who wants an important jade ring that is immeasurably finer than 99% of the jade rings on the market. This is an excellent investment piece because fine jadeite jade will only continue to increase in value. The ring is currently a size 8.5 and could be resized by your local jeweler taking care not to heat the stone. The ring sits approximately 8 mm high on the finger. I no longer have the ring's original 2000 GIA report (#10945463) but as you can see in the screenshot it states that the ring is natural, undyed jadeite jade with no polymer.
