Add sparkle and eye-catching design to your ensemble! Crafted from platinum embraced sterling silver, this ring is beautifully graced by one asscher cut 8.5mm simulated diamond in your choice of white or canary. The canary center stone is surrounded by 24 round cut 1.5mm canary simulated diamonds while the white center stone comes surrounded by 24 round cut 1.5mm white simulated diamonds.
You'll also find six round cut 2mm white simulated diamonds down either shank, two baguette cut 2.5 x 2.5 x 1mm white simulated diamonds on either side of the main stone, and various round cut 1.3mm white simulated diamonds around the halo. All stones are in prong settings.
The diamond equivalent weight of the center simulated diamond is 2.78, and the total diamond equivalent weight is 3.97ct. (both approximate). The ring measures 1/2"L x 13/16"W x 1/4"H.
Part of the Brilliante® Collection. Made in China.
The Meaning of Yellow Stones
As all diamonds are symbolic of the timelessness of love and commitment, yellow diamonds - or in this case yellow Brilliante simulated diamonds - have even further meaning. The yellow stones are associated with sunshine, cheerfulness, joy and happiness. If you are looking to find a more personal meaning, yellow is the color of the Zodiac symbol of Leo. As the designated ribbon color for military support, a yellow stone can be especially meaningful to military families and those affected by deployments.
Platinum can be used as a finish coating over sterling silver or copper alloys. Its bright, pure luster enhances the brilliance of gemstones and does not discolor or oxidize. Platinum plating is also characterized by its good resistance to surface abrasion, making jewelry pieces more durable against everyday and long-term wear. Over time, platinum plating will wear off and therefore will require re-plating.
To care for your plated jewelry items:
On the Mohs Scale, which measures the hardness of minerals, cubic zirconia is an 8.0 to 8.5. It is important to understand that hardness is not necessarily related to durability. Even though diamond is the hardest mineral (10.0 on the Mohs Scale), it can still be chipped or broken.
The only ways to tell the difference between cubic zirconia and diamond are by use of a thermal probe, by weighing the loose stone or by microscopic examination of surface features and inclusions. Cubic zirconia weighs approximately 65% more than diamond. Therefore, while a 6.25 mm round diamond weighs about 1.00 carat, the same size cubic zirconia weighs about 1.65 carats. If you know the weight of a cubic zirconia, you can figure out the diamond weight equivalent by multiplying the cubic zirconia weight by 0.6, or 60%.
Few natural diamonds on the market today are perfectly cut, and those that are cost much more than the usual diamond. Unleashing the fire, beauty and brilliance of a stone depends on its precise cut. Simulated diamonds are an excellent balance between quality, beauty and price.
Brilliance: The white light leaving a jewel, traveling upward, which is visible to the eye. Brilliance is sometimes referred to as “sparkle.”
Dispersion: Flashes of rainbow colors. Also called “fire.”
Hardness: Resistance to scratching. The higher the number, the more resistant.
Luster: The shininess of a jewel.
Toughness: Resistance to breakage.
