Description

  • Michele della Valle
  • 18 karat white gold, tanzanite, diamond, ring
The cushion-shaped tanzanite weighing 56.45 carats, the mounting set throughout with small round diamonds weighing 2.93 carats, size 6, maker's mark for Michele della Valle.

Condition

The tanzanite is a rich shade of deep violetish blue with nice saturation and even coloration. Diamonds are approximately G-H color and VS clarity. In very good condition. Due to the continuously set shank, it would be very difficult to size this ring.
In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above. Since we are not professional conservators or restorers, we urge you to consult with a restorer or conservator of your choice who will be better able to provide a detailed, professional report. Prospective buyers should inspect each lot to satisfy themselves as to condition and must understand that any statement made by Sotheby's is merely a subjective qualified opinion. Illustrations in the catalogue may not be actual size. Prospective purchasers are reminded that, unless the catalogue description specifically states that a stone is natural, we have assumed that some form of treatment may have been used and that such treatment may not be permanent. Our presale estimates reflect this assumption.
