Value of a ring

I have a 3.25ct center diamond that is I1 and it was remounted in an 18 kt gold Martin Gruber Nova mounting that has 1.5 cts of vs diamonds. Have an estimate of this ring? It was appraised in 2005 at 45000.00. Now I know that the appraisal value is not the market value of a ring like this but not sure. My friend has a jewelry store locally and has offered me 15000.00 for the ring.

Replacing a single baguette diamond

Hi Fred! Earlier today I noticed one of baguette diamonds was missing! I’m devastated and although I’m trying hard to find the original I just have no clear idea of when it fell out! I would love some information on how much you think it would cost to replace it, unfortunately it’s almost 13-15 years old and was handed down to me by my mother, so any paperwork and information for it has been lost over the years. I’m more than happy to send you any photos if that’s what you need to get a good idea. Just let me know!

Thank you

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.
