One of my most favorite pieces to fall on my lap of late! A truly beautiful piece of jewelry to add to one's jewelry wardrobe (I wanna add it to mine!). The old mine cushion central diamond is incredibly bright and prismatic - picking up colors and throwing back fire with every movement. The gold is smooth and buttery, slipping on and off the finger like silk. A nice hefty weight at 16.1 pennyweight, in 18kt yellow gold. I love the heft on my finger! Size 9 and full sizable.
A pretty special piece of jewelry.
Stamped "Boucheron Paris" on the inner shank, with a French punch mark on the outer shank.
Diamond is estimated to be K/L color & VVS clarity. GIA standards.

Who is Boucheron?
(From the Boucheron website)
Founded in 1858 by Frédéric Boucheron, it is the oldest jewelry Maison in Place Vendôme. Famous throughout the world for its bold, free style, Boucheron has conquered women's hearts by offering ever more creative jewelry set with characterful stones.
Frédéric Boucheron is born in 1831 into a family of clothiers. He breaks with family tradition at a young age to open his jewelry shop. Having learnt much about delicacy in materials, he begins to make his gold work as supple as the fabrics and lace of his childhood. Success is immediate and soon the whole of Paris is rushing to the door of his Palais Royal boutique. In 1893, he is the first jeweler to open a boutique Place Vendôme, making this place a showcase of savoir-vivre, savoir-faire and French elegance that has no equal in the world. It is Frédéric Boucheron's unique ability to capture the zeitgeist that also leads him to invent new ways of wearing jewelry. His success spreads abroad and the order books start to include the names of members of Royal families and later of Hollywood's biggest stars.
