Black diamond

I am currently deployed. I bought a 2ct black diamond last time I was here for around 400 it was real. Well this time around I am getting a ring. 14kt rose gold with a 3.5ct black diamond and has a total of 1ct regular diamonds. A couple of questions on the said ring without any pictures or specifics on the cut. First, is there a such thing as 14ct rose gold? With everything I have mentioned about the ring how much would you say it’s worth? The guys stuff is appraising higher then what he is selling it for. He wants 1400 for this ring and promises that it will appraise for minimum of 5k in the states. I trust the guy but don’t want to lose my money.

Purchasing a ring.

I found a ring in a pawn shop that I liked. It is a shallow cut .80 pear center diamond with smaller ones on each side totalling 1.46carat weight. It doesn’t have a lot of sparkle. Being shallow it sits low which I like. They are asking 2400 for it. What do you think?

Hi i have a collection of .2 carat round diamonds that ive recycled from old ugly discounted damaged 18kt rings, purchasing for approx $150 aud each. I’m wondering how much a Gia certificate costs in aud and if its worth having them inscribed? I don’t have the details of the diamonds but they all look eye clean and good clear to grey colour. I want to use the diamonds as a retirement fund for when I’m older. I plan on continuing to use the system i have for finding good stones.

Estate ring

My mother purchased a Jabel ring from an estate sale in Arizona. The inside states “Platinum Jabel” on one side and the other side says “patd. 116337.” I believe the center stone is a rare Cabochon, in turquoise. Is that possible or was the center likely switched out at one time? Also, how much would it be worth estimated? There are two diamonds, one on each side of the center stone.
