18CT WHITE GOLD .25CT DIAMOND BAGUETTE 1/2 ETERNITY RING
Stunning! This channel set diamond baguette would make the perfect present. A baguette cut is rectangular and has fewer facets, so gives a very modern, clean appearance. The setting is smooth and there are no claws to catch on clothes etc.
Said to be “a girl’s best friend”, the name 'diamond' derives from the ancient Greek word ‘adamas’ meaning invincible. These stones are a G colour and VS clarity.
Diamond is the birthstone for April, and the anniversary gift for (traditionally) 60 years of matrimony. However, many modern lists quote diamonds at 30 years, and frankly my birthday is not in April but I have been known to say 'Diamond of course!' when asked...
Care: Diamonds are the hardest natural mineral known to man, so will scratch any other item if left loose in a jewellery box. Keep in its box when not being worn.
White gold is an alloy of gold, and white metals such as platinum, palladium and silver. It is othen coated in rhodium, and when this coating wears off, a more yellowy tinge can appear to the metal. This is normal, and it's a simple matter to have the ring re-plated in rhodium, but to slow this process keep your ring away from household chemicals. Particularly chlorine; it is best to remove white gold rings when swimming, showering or bathing.
