Revision: changed not to note error in 1st draft. "note the whole Tiffany & Co. hallmark is still intact"

Here is a follow up picture of the T & Co Hallmark for this amazing ring. It is still in excellent condition despite its 120yrs old or so.

Made in the late 1800's and still in totally excellent condition (Tiff & Co introduced the classic engagement ring in 1886). The diamond is of old European cut with a small open cutlet and is of "very good cut" by today's GIA standards (I've never seen a euro cut diamond this well cut and symmetrical); it sparkles like crazy, it's like a star! Comes with GIA grad appraisal (Greg Taylor, GIA since 1975) It is 0.57ct, VVS2 clarity and J-K color (but it sparkles soooo much it looks pretty white to me even compared to my E-F colored diamonds). Insane quality for it's time for sure!!!

The diamond is set in platinum on a 19k yellow gold shank (acid tested) which is stamped Tiffany & Co. The platinum prong setting is sure to stand the test of time even longer; the gold band is in no way worn down and is quite thick sideways). Ring size approx 5.75 - 6.
