This handmade 18 karat yellow gold ring was crafted by the famed Venetian jeweller 'Nardi'. This piece centres on a 12.50 carat 'square cushion checkerboard' cut rubelite type pink tourmaline which has been four claw set. The central stone is graded as 'bright dark pink lightly included' and is a beautiful fuchsia pink. The tourmaline is halo set with 64 round brilliant cut yellow diamonds which have been grain set. The outside of the shank is 'three quarter' set with 30 more round brilliant cut yellow diamonds along with one further that has been pressure set into the side of the shank near the 'Nardi' signature. Each of the diamonds are classed as 'fancy intense yellow' in colour and VS-SI clarity totalling 1.0 carat. This ring was acquired together with another extremely similar ring which centres on a green peridot, and was likely made as a copy of this particular Nardi piece. We have listed the rings separately for sale however in this listing is included an image of both rings worn together for reference.
