18k White Gold 5.07 ct. Oval Diamond Ring, (5.56 cttw), Size 7

This exquisite diamond ring is crafted in 18 karat white gold and holds a lavish 5.07 carat oval center diamond. The dazzling center stone is near colorless (H color) and has a minimum clarity of I1. It's cradled in a four-prong setting and framed by round diamonds, with additional round diamonds enhancing the graceful split shank. There are 56 accent diamonds altogether (.56 cttw, I color, I1 clarity). The lines of this ring are simple and graceful, while the opulence of the diamonds elevates the design to luxury status. This is definitely a ring to be noticed.

18 karat white gold is a beautiful and flattering precious metal for diamond jewelry. This luxurious metal has a wonderful white color and luster that complements the clear brilliance of diamonds. 18k gold is 75% pure 24 karat gold, with the remaining percentage being alloy metals that add strength. 18k has a lustrous white color, and a slightly heavier weight than 14k. Its durability makes it well-suited for a diamond ring that will be worn everyday. As a precious metal, 18k will naturally patina, or scratch lightly on the surface, but the original bright polished luster can be maintained through an occasional cleaning and polishing.
