Antique Ring
I found an antique ring at a local shop and I really, really like it. It is a filigree ring with a .52 OEC. The specs are SI1 and L/M in color, however, since the stone is mounted, I'm not sure how accurate the grading is. The cost is $850, do you think it is a good deal? It is in 14k.

Also, how do I know if the OEC is well cut? How do I judge the diamond?

I didn't snap any pics, but I'm going back to the store again to make sure I really like it and I'll ask if they mind if I take any pictures. Smile

RE: Antique Ring
You will need to make sure you can see it in proper lighting. For old cuts, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I like a floral pattern, with a small culet, and a good glow, no to little obstruction. Go by what you see, don't worry about stats. But you should take a loupe to make sure there is no damage to the stone.
